My wife and I live all alone,
In a little log hut we call our own.
She loves gin and I love rum
I tell you we have lots of fun!

Ha! Ha! Ha-you and me,
Little brown jug how I love thee!
Ha! Ha! Ha, you and me,
Little brown jug, how I love thee.

When I go toiling on the farm
I take the little jug under my arm;
Place it under a shady tree,
Little brown jug tis you and me!

Tis you that makes me friends and foes,
'Tis you that makes me wear old clothes;
But, seeing you're so near my nose,
Tip her up and down she goes.

If all the folks in Adam's race
Were gathered together in one place,
Then I'd prepare to she'd a tear
Before I'd part from you, my dear.

And when I die don't bury me at all,
Just pickle my bones in alcohol;
I'ut a bottle o' booze at my head and feet
And then I know that I will keep.

The rose is red, my nose is too,
The violets blue and so are you;
And yet, I guess, before I stop,
We'd better take another drop.
