Two Hundred Year Old Alcoholic

Irish Song Lyrics - Two Hundred Year Old AlcoholicAuthor: Liam Clancy

When I was eighty I started smoking Took to drinking at eighty-five At ninety I started courting Thank God that I was alive Ninety-five saw me in business Determined to rake in a pile At a hundred I made my first million And I started living in style CHORUS Oh, it's never too late to start living To get out and have some fun The sun will be just as shiny in the morning As the first day the world begun Well I moved to an uptown penthouse Used fifties to light my cigars Developed a taste for fine champagne Drove fast I-talian cars But the doctor he give me a warning And a lecture on right and wrong If I didn't give up my sinful ways I couldn't live very long But I said to him...CHORUS Now I'm a two-hundred year old alcoholic And the nicotine's caught up on me But worst of all in this morning's mail Got a suit for paternity But I'm not really unhappy 'Cause maybe I'll have me a son And his morning's will be just as shiny As the first day the world begun CHORUS
