The song is Tinny Can On My Tail. There are lyrics to some of his songs on Matt McGinn Site - Songs, but this is not included amongst them, nor can I see the lyrics anywhere else.

The song is available on the CD The Best of Matt McGinn Vol 2

There's a YouTube video. Here's my transcription. Note there's a gap where I found the recording unintelligible.

Matt McGinn

1. I swear I had no whisky. I swear I'd drunk no ale,
But I turned around and what'd I see but a tinny can on my tail?

CHORUS: I don't want that tinny can, tinny can, tinny can on my tail.
Won't somebody help me with the tinny can on my tail?

2. Seven times she married. Seven times she failed.
Down the aisle she goes again with a tinny can on her tail.

3. You'll see them down in Oxford, in Cambridge and in Yale,
Running around and trying to catch the tinny can on their tail.

4. He spent some out skinning. He spent some time in jail.
He's inside once again because of the tinny can on his tail.

5. A politician friend of mine said....
Spent his whole life following the tinny can on his tail.

6. I asked some kids to help me. They laughed till they turned pale,
Started playing kick-the-can with the tinny can on my tail.
