woke up this morning like i do in every song
i went to brush my teeth and saw that there was something wrong
that ain't water in the drain and let me tell y'all
that something that i smelled there
was pure grain alcohol

there's whisky in the faucet, oh man i thought i'd lost it
with that amber water flowing drop by drop
so grab a mason jar 'cause it's time to stock the bar
oh lord oh please don't ever let it stop.

i ran into the kitchen just as fast as i could go
i checked the sink in there to see if it had the whisky flow
much to my surprise it was flowing like a fountain
this must be what they mean by the big rock candy mountain

i called my friends to spread the news
before ten minutes passed
folks i didn't even know were holding up a glass
wild turkey, jameson's, jack and jim and bushmill's
i didn't care how much they drank, my landlord pays the bills

now me and all my friends we just party until dark
'cause there ain't a chance in hell that we'll run out of maker's mark
the only problem i can see that makes things slightly tricky
you can't take a bath to hide the smell when the pipes are flowin' whisky.
