Does anyone have the lyrics to the song 'Belly up to the bar boys'?

I had a copy of this song on an old '45 when I was a kid. Don't know what happened to it, and was trying the other day to remember the lyrics. It is a novelty drinking song. About all I can remember was the chorus, which was (approximately):

Belly up, Belly up to the bar boys, Better loosen your belt Only drink when you're all alone or with somebody else Belly up, Belly up to the bar boys, ??????????????????? Only drink when it's day or night or somewhere in between.

BELLY UP TO THE BAR, BOYS is a song from the musical play "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" by Meredith Willson (New York: Putnam, 1961).

Here's an excerpt:


CHRISTMAS: Belly up, belly up to the bar, boys.
Let your money be seen.

MOLLY: Only drink by day or night or somewheres in between.

ALL: Belly up, belly up to the bar, boys,
Very good for your mind.

MOLLY: Both feet on the rail will make you fall on your be —

MINER #3: Hi-dle-dee-dle-die-dee like the
Girl whose name was Nellie
Though Nellie was kissing everybody else, just
Had to marry Nellie or die, die, die.

ALL: Had to marry Nellie or die, die, die.
