I'll go and I'll get blue bleezing blind drunk
Just to give Mickey a warning
And just for to spite I will stay out all night
And come rolling home drunk in the morning

Now friends, I have a sad story
A very sad story to tell
I married a man for his money
And he's worse than the devil himself

For when Mickey comes home in the evening
He batters me all black and blue
He knocks me about from the kitchen
From the bedroom right through to the room

For of whiskey I ne'er was a lover
But what can a poor woman do
I'll go and I'll drown all my sorrows
But I wish I could drown Mickey too

DT Lyrics:

In Mudcat MIDIs:
Blue Bleezing Blind Drunk (As sung by Sheila Stewart of Blairgowrie; she learnt it from her mother, Belle, who in turn had it from "an old ploughman", probably in the early 1950s. Midi made from the notation in Ailie Munro's The Folk Music Revival in Scotland)
