VERSE (*whiskey*)
Oh, show *me/us/us* the way to the next *whiskey* bar
Oh, don't ask why
*No/Oh/No*, don't ask why
For we must find *the/our/the* next *whiskey* bar
Or if we don't find *the/our/the* next *whiskey* bar
I tell you we must die
I tell you we must die
I tell you, I tell you, I tell you we must die

CHORUS (*whiskey*)
Oh, Moon of Alabama,
It's time to say good-bye
We've lost our good ol' mama,
And must have *whiskey*, oh, you know why

CHORUS (*whiskey*)

VERSE (*little dollar*)

VERSE (*little girl*)
CHORUS (*little girl*)

Oh, Moon of Alabama
It's time to say auf Wiedersehen
We've lost our good ol' mama
And must have little girl, oh, you know why
You know why
You know why
