    "Good Rats" Lyrics

    Dropkick Murphys feat. Shane MacGowan

    Have you ever stopped to think about what rats do for fun?
    Sure they crawl around and scurry, yeah they're always on the run
    But a rat sure likes a good time, just like you and me
    Ill prove it with a tale about a rat-infested brewery

    It started with a little lad named Vermin McCann
    Who fell upon a drink that made him feel like quite a man
    He rounded up his furry boys, though some wore a frown
    They quickly changed their tune and they slammed a couple down

    One, Two, One-Two-Three-Four!

    Come on all you Good Rats, we'll send you to heaven
    You'll find the Pearly Gates in the froth and the foam
    Cause in these vats you've made quite a creation
    A potion that turned the Guinness to gold!

    Like mice behind a piper, rats from all around
    Soon headed for this factory in old Dublin town
    They surely heard the news about this fancy new rat-brew
    They came, they saw, they had a taste, and knocked back a few


    The rats were in a tizzy, addicted to the bone
    The hairy lugs were giddy, they were never goin home
    Like a bunch of drunken pirates, prepared to walk the plank
    They drank they sang they took a plunge, and in the beer they sank!
