moonshine song

Moonshine Song
by Blind Peanut Nicholson
(a high-speed bluegrass breakdown)

we’re talkin moonshiiiiiiiine baby
the distillation of joy and good cheer
we’re talkin moonshiiiiiiine honey
mama pass that jar over here

it’ll lubricate your gears
and eradicate your fears
it will evaporate your tears
and recalibrate your years
it’ll blow out both your ears
for much cheaper than a beer
it draws folks from far & near
and then it kicks you in the rear

we’re talkin moonshine baby
the very quintessence of joy and good cheer
we’re talkin moonshine honey
mama pass that jar over here

it’s a gift from God above
it’s the next best thing to love
gets you cooin like a dove
ain’t no need to push & shove
it’ll warm you from within
lead you down a road of sin
give you that goofy-lookin grin
it’s a battle you can’t win

we’re talkin moonshine baby
the absolute expression of joy and good cheer
we’re talkin moonshine honey
mama pass that jar over here

in a mason jar or old tin cup
it’ll light your face right up
have you howlin’ like a pup
and then it whups you in the butt
then you wake up in your bed’
with that throbbin in your head
you might wish that you were dead
but you want some more instead

we’re talkin moonshine baby
the most complete manifestation of joy and good cheer
we’re talkin moonshine honey
mama pass that jar over here

takes the rust right off your car
you can’t get it in a bar
it’s the sweetest thing by far
just like heaven in a jar
it’ll warm you to your toes
clear out your sinus and your nose
make you do what heaven only knows
oh let me have another dose

we’re talkin moonshine baby
the incarnation of joy and good cheer
we’re talkin moonshine honey
mama pass that jar over here
