Here's a Dram for the Piper Well, come in me hearty fellows, Hang your hats behind the door; If you're only filled to bursting, Well, there's surely room for more; We'll deny the cold of winter; We'll have only warmth and cheer, As we drink a toast together On the threshold of the year. CHO: Here's a dram for the piper, Here's a dram for the hall, Here's a dram to raise the rafters And here's long life to you all, (repeat) Knock the scales from off the bottles; Light the fire beneath the still; Let it soak us to our elbows, As we medicate our ills; For the whiskey is forgiving; It can wipe the conscience clear; As we raise a glass together On the tankard of the year. CHORUS Here we tie the knot as lovers; Here we drink a toast as friends; As we pass along from hand to hand In a dance that never ends; We'll forget about tomorrow; We'll have only warmth and cheer; As we gather here together At the cradle of the year.
