☘️ Let's Get Drunk and Sing Old Irish Folk Songs



Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona duit!


In honor of the holiday, let’s get drunk and sing old Irish folk songs. For real, though—enjoy one of our light-hearted tracks from Year of the Muffin, vol. 1 called “Let’s Get Drunk and Sing Old Irish Folk Songs”! We released this song the week before St. Patrick’s Day in 2020, and enlisted the help of our good friend and excellent Irish musician Brendan Loughrey to add an ounce of authenticity to this otherwise whimsical song.


This track features a completely fabricated Irish “folk song” for the bridge, complete with words invented to fit the spirit of the song that hold no real meaning, at least according to Merriam-Webster. We’re grateful to Brendan for bringing this folk song to life with his fun style. He’s a real trooper, and didn’t bat an eyelash at Hans’s humor in writing it.


As the song develops, we approach the final choruses featuring group vocals that derail further with each repetition, as the Irish whisky flows all in good fun. Sláinte!


A young fair lass went riding across the sea of blue And when she saw the shoreline, she came right back to chew On a big piece of lechtin promise on a dish made from a bone And after all her travels, she made her way back home

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, any day is fine

Whenever you find your boredom, take this advice of mine

Let’s get drunk and sing old Irish folk songs

Let’s get drunk, hey any old song will do

Can you remember any old Irish folk songs?

If you can’t, I’ll write a new one for you:

A young fair lass went riding across the sea of blue

And when she saw the shoreline, she came right back to chew

On a big piece of lechtin promise on a dish made from a bone

And after all her travels, she made her way back home

So let’s get tanked and sing old Irish folk songs

Get all lit up, hey any old song will do

Don’t remember your name, let alone an Irish folk song

So I guess I’ll have to have another brew

Let’s all be drunk and old folk Irish sing songs

Drunk be all, hey sing song any we old

What’s the point in this old Irish folk song?

I don’t know, but I’ll have another beer with you

What an excuse?

I don’t know, but I’ll have another beer with you
