Drunk and Disorderly: Mighty Sparrow

Drink and drunk yes that's me name,
Always make me family shame
Like Mary-Anne all day all night,
I start whoring high like a Kite
It's Christmas everyday is Christmas,
I could drink me rum trust,
Even in the Mass, I Love to be

Drunk and disorderly
Always in custody
Me friends and me family
All man fed up with me, cause I
Drunk and disorderly
Every weedend I in the jail
Drunk and disorderly, nobody to stand me bail

I can't stop Lord and I won't try,
I feel so good when I high
So bring wine, bring beer, bring gin,
Bring champagne, ink anyting
Night time, better in the sunshine,
Anytime is right time,
To drink me high wine, until I get

Drunk and disorderly
Always in custody
Me friends and me family
All man fed up with me, cause I
Drunk and disorderly
Every weedend I in the jail
Drunk and disorderly, nobody to stand me bail

They never teach me rum control,
So put as long me glass could whole
They say a hungry man's a angry man,
Well a drunkin' man's a happy man
Good Friday, could fall on Ash Wednesday,
As long as it's rum-day, I ain't goin nowhere, until I get

Drunk and disorderly
Always in custody
Me friends and me family
All man fed up with me, cause I
Drunk and disorderly
Every weedend I in the jail
Drunk and disorderly, nobody to stand me bail

If it's good rum for Christmas it's waste,
let's to open it now, and take a taste
I say break the seal don't waste me time,
And bring it with a willing mind
You feel good, you stay in a happy mood,
Rum give you your vitamin and nourishment and food, it's nice to be

Drunk and disorderly
Always in custody
Me friends and me family
All man fed up with me, cause I
Drunk and disorderly
Every weedend I in the jail
Drunk and disorderly, nobody to stand bail

I think that this song is comical, not to make fun of alcoholics. Sparrow knows how to lighten things up.
