Drinkin' for Two
So this is my first attempt at my long time goal of writing a drinking song. It needs a little brushing up here and there (any suggestions welcome). The musics ready the production's just slow at the moment and I was hoping for some feedback. It's in 6/8.

Drinkin' for Two

Drink a round all ye haggard
and damn dirty beggars
You lovers, my brothers, my friends.
And won't you raise up your glass
And drink to my ass!
'Cause tonight I'm drinking for two!

So drink a round down my brother
And beg for another!
The hour's still early and I've had a few!
They'll be hell come the morrow
An' I remember my sorrow
Oh but tonight I'm drinkin' for two!

You see my baby's a quitter
But she's here in my liver.
An' every fresh mug that they brew.
See she told me to leave
Said she found a new squeeze.
So tonight I'm drinkin' for two.

So drink a round down my brother
And pass me another!
The hour's still early and I've had a few!
They'll be hell come the morrow
An' I remember my sorrow
Oh but tonight I'm drinkin' for two!

Superb !
Really reads like it could become an excellent drinking song....it comes over as sounding Poggish or at least that it should be sung by a ship full of pirates.
And every one joins in for the last verse for one big drunken stupid sing-along ..... excellent.
