A Snifter

After working hard all day...

After working hard all day
        In the office,
How much worse on homeward way
        My old cough is!
Barney's Bar is gaily lit,
        Let me stop there;
Just to buck me up a bit
        Have a drop there.

As I stand beside the screen
I have thought of how Noreen
        Will be waiting;
Baby Patsy in her lap
        Gay and laughing,
While at Barney's foaming tap
        I am quaffing.

Barney's Bar is mighty bright,
        Looks so cheery.
Wonder what I'll drink tonight?
        Gee! I'm weary.
Will I have Scotch or Rye?
        Bourbon maybe . . .
Then I see with mental eye
        Wife and baby.

So I say 'tis malted milk
        I'll be skoffin';
Sooth my throttle sleek as silk,
        Ease my coughin' . . .
Say, I love them two to death,
        Sure they miss me:
With no whisky on my breath
        How they'll kiss me!
