Am G Am When friends cruise the Macc’s muddy line F G Of spirit we know there’s no lack C G Am So mix whisky and green ginger wine F G Am And drink down a large whisky mac F C G Am Whisky mac on the Macc, with friends knock it back F G Am Jokes, laughter, songs and whisky mac When a bitter nor-westerly blows And its bite feels as sharp as brass tacks The answer as each boater knows Is to down several large whisky macs The dangers of consuming booze Run like water from a duck’s back When at the end of a long cold day’s cruise You’re offered a large whisky mac When you’re feeling crabby or stoned If your mood is at best labelled black Your narrowboat’s no alcohol free zone So pour out one more whisky mac When floating at five one eight feet Of water there’s sometimes a lack Though grounded do not be downbeat “Bottoms up” with a large whisky mac If your boating wardrobe’s incomplete As your waterproofs you didn’t pack Think not of the rain, snow and sleet But the warmth of a large whisky mac When you cruise above the Cheshire plain And geese launch dam-busting attacks Ignore their foul bombing campaign And cheer up with some large whisky macs When walkers pass you don’t grouse If you’re o’ertaken by everyman Jack Just make haste to a warm public house To join friends for a large whisky mac Now this teacher’s escaped from the bells And the incessant yackety-yak No more evil laboratory smells Just good friends sharing more whisky mac
