DRAMAMINE

Charlie Ipcar
Richmond, Maine

Now some don't eat a thing all day,
Some pack a bag an' snack along the way;
Don't matter much, you can do it either way
You're gonna up and chuck your roast beef sandwich!

Chorus:
Dram-a-mine! Whup, Dram-a-mine!
Just one pill before the evening sail;
Dram-a-mine! Whup, Dram-a-mine!
Or you'll up an' chuck your roast beef sandwich!

Now here you see our fearless crew,
There's Brett an' Nor an' Eli too!
We's all standing by just to clean up after you
When you up and chuck your roast beef sandwich!...

Now our green bucket's seen its day,
Tossed its share of spunk away;
When you see it coming best look the other way
Or you'll up an' chuck your roast beef sandwich!...

Now if you've got some food to stow,
Just ask our mate, she'll tell you where to go;
Use the lee rail, please, don't spew it down below
When you up an' chuck your roast beef sandwich!...
