MOUNTAIN DEW

CHORUS: THEY CALL IT THAT GOOD OLD MOUNTAIN DEW, DEW, DEW,
AND THEN MEN THAT REFUSE IT ARE FEW, MIGHTY FEW,
I,LL SHUT UP MY MUG, IF YOU,LL FILL UP MY JUG WITH THAT
GOOD OL, MOUNTAIN DEW. MM
MY UNCLE BILL HAS A STILL ON THE HILL AND ROLLS OUT A BARREL OR TWO
THE BUZZARDS IS THE SKY GET SO DRUNK THAT THEY CANNOT FLY,
JUST FROM SMELLIN' THAT GOOD OL' MOUNTAIN DEW}

MY UNCLE WILL LIVES ON THE HILL
MARRIED TO MY AUNTIE LOU
HE,LL GET UP AND RUN IF YOU,LL GIVE HIM A GUN
AND SOME OF THAT GOOD OL, MOUNTAIN DEW.
MY COUSIN MORT WAS SAWED OFF IN SHORT,
MEASURES ABOUT FIVE FOOT TWO.
HE,LL ACT LIKE A GIANT IF YOU,LL GIVE HIM A PINT
OF THAT GOOD OL, MOUNTAIN DEW.
