Everybody Needs a Drinking Song (Lyrics)

Lyrics by Rie Sheridan Rose, Music by Marc Gunn

Performed by Marc Gunn
From CD: Don't Go Drinking With Hobbits

*Everybody needs a drinking song
Everybody needs a carol–
Everybody needs a drinking song
So tap another barrel!

Some like to drink the whole night long
Some like to drink like fishes
Some like to drink the whole night long
So best bring in more dishes!

Some like to munch on mushroom pie
Some like to eat stewed rabbits
Some like to munch on mushroom pie
So hone your cooking habits!

Some like to smoke Old Toby leaf
Some like to smoke a pipe
Some like to smoke Old Toby leaf
So don’t let’s hear you gripe!

Some like to dress in their best clothes
Some like to dress real fine
Some like to dress in their best clothes
So show me yours, I’ll show you mine…

Some like to sing along with me
Some like to sing quite cheery
Some like to sing along with me
So let’s make this one “beery!”

Some like to drink the whole night long
Some like to drink all night
Some like to drink the whole night long
So let’s do it up right!
