Pour Another Ounce of Rum

Pour another ounce of rum in the eggnog,
Spike that Christmas punch with some gin.
Orange juice just ain't the same
Without some vodka or champagne,
Let the holiday festivities begin!


Started off the morning with mimosas,
Then got right to work on that fruitcake.
The recipe called for rum,
And it didn't take me long,
I finished off the whole damn bottle 'fore it baked.

Pour another ounce of rum in the eggnog,
Spike that Christmas punch with some gin.
Orange juice just ain't the same
Without some vodka or champagne,
Let the holiday festivities begin!


Had lunch with the charming Mr. Daniels
He is quite the man of romance.
So's Mr. Cuervo it would seem,
Because him and Old Jim Beam
Later took their turns askin' me to dance.

Pour another ounce of rum in the eggnog,
Spike that Christmas punch with some gin.
Orange juice just ain't the same
Without some vodka or champagne,
Let the holiday festivities begin!


We had to have the white wine with the turkey,
And a bottle of red for the beef.
A champagne toast at first,
Spanish coffee with dessert,
And start it all off with a nice aperatif.

Pour another ounce of rum in the eggnog,
Spike that Christmas punch with some gin.
Orange juice just ain't the same
Without some vodka or champagne,
Let the holiday festivities begin!
