    One day while bopping about NYC with our ukes strapped on to our persons, a fella outside of an Irish pub asked Hot Time Harv and me to play him a tune. Harv broke into “Black and Tans” (don’t play it for Brits). The fella instantly feel in love with us; invited us into his pub; and proceeded to feed us and fill us up with booze whilst we sang and played the night away. Lyric and chords can be found at

    Cheers . . .

    On this St Patty’s Day, here’s a little Irish tune Harv and I wrote. Warning, contains adult content.

    Cheers . . .
