Celtaddict Origins:Mouse on the Barroom Floor/Intoxicated Rat (45) RE: Origins:Mouse on the Barroom Floor/Intoxicated Rat 29 Dec 15


We sang the third verse as

So we brought on the cat and they had a little spat
And the cat ate up all the mouse
And the moral of this story is,
No, you can't have a drink on the house.

I think I learned this in New Orleans, possibly from Beth Waggoner Patterson or Betsy McGovern,years ago, possibly early 80s.
