Ok, so I was singing my daughter to sleep last night, singing her some old Tom Waits songs, and I got to thinking...

What are people's favorite drinking songs? Either songs directly about drinking, or songs that they like to listen to when they've had a few.

She went out under my piss-poor rendition of Waits' "Bad Liver and a Broken Heart," which I would have to consider to be, at least for me, the epitome of a pure, broken down, alone-in-a-bar-at-closing-time pathos. Pretty much all old Tom Waits falls into this, I suppose. I'm wondering what else people either really want to listen to when they've had a few, or what songs just bring out those same sentiments.

That song they sing in Jaws when they're inside the boat drinking and sharing scar stories when Jaws starts to break in.

Show me the way to go home. I'm tired and I want to go bed. I had a little drink about an hour ago and it got right to my head....

Wild Rover (No Nay Never)

I've been a wild rover for many a year
And I spent all my money on whiskey and beer,
And now I'm returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the wild rover no more.

cho: And it's no, nay, never,
No nay never no more,
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more.

I went to an ale-house I used to frequent
And I told the landlady my money was spent.
I asked her for credit, she answered me "nay
Such a custom as yours I could have any day."

cho:

I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight.
She said "I have whiskey and wines of the best
And the words that I spoke sure were only in jest."

cho:

I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done
And I'll ask them to pardon their prodigal son.
And if they caress (forgive) me as ofttimes before
Sure I never will play the wild rover no more.

cho:


ETA: This uh... proves my point

Would it be too cliche to say Jimmy Buffet's "Why don't we get drunk...."
