Thick heads...

We all like our whisky,

a toddy or two,

well that’s how it starts,

then there’s a few.

Lets do something different

and create something new,

smoked salmon I said

but we’d had a few.

Infused with a dram

and beechwood too,

by McGeorge he’s got it,

you’re a genius you.

So we kicked of our boots

and went to the shed,

that day it was born

by three blokes with sore heads.
