"Drappi" is strong drink, as in "a wee drappie o' it", "a drap o' the best". A wee (small) drappie. A measure of spirits. In the above song the word for the measure replaces the word for drink. A similar use, in Scots, is of the term hauf (half), which again is used to represent whisky.
love, john.
