Drink another half a pint and a good, cool can of beer!

Oh, kick it, Mister Man!
Kick it!
We're all down in tin can alley!
I was down in tin can alley,
Loaded down with that bust-head gin,
I was down in tan can alley,
Loaded down with that bust-head gin,
The police took me to the jailhouse,
I got out and come right back again.
I liked old tin can alley,
I even liked old tin can jail.
I liked old tin can alley,
I even liked old tin can jail.
Still they treat me like a dog,
With a tin can tied onto my tail.
