Whisky And Women

  • (Shel Silverstein)

    Give me strong whisky and weak women
    Everything will be just fine
    Give me weak whisky and a strong woman
    You'll break this heart of mine
    I love women, whisky too
    When I get drunk there's nothing I won't do
    Give me strong whisky and weak women
    Everything will be just fine

    Give me old whisky and young women
    Everything's going my way
    Give me young whisky and an old woman
    There'll be hell to pay
    Whisky's fine when it's aged in wood
    When a woman's aged it's not quite as good
    Give me old whisky and young women
    Everything's going my way

    Give me good whisky and bad women
    Sit back and watch me scream
    Give me bad whisky and a good woman
    I won't do a thing
    I like my whisky neat and strong
    I like my women loving long
    Give me good whisky and bad women
    Everything's going my way

    (as sung by Hamish Imlach)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  •  [1976:] Wegen des Calvinismus haben viele Schotten Schuldgefühle, was Sex betrifft. Um diese zu unterdrücken, trinken sie dann Whisky. Das geht so gut, daß sie vergessen, weshalb sie ihn trinken. Also bleibt Schottlands Bevölkerung gering. (Notes Hamish Imlach, 'Scottish Sabbath')
