Hugill says this is one of those songs generally referred to as a "rare" song. Rare because it was rarely printed, not rarely sung. Seems collectors found it difficult to bowdlerize so many dirty bits.
*Pisco is also the unofficial national drink of Peru. Variously described, it is basically a local liquor distilled from fermented grape juice. From the information received, it is also an effective paint stripper and solvent. Thus, it is standard to order two, not just one shot. Seems the second shot is needed to anesthetize one's throat after the damage done by the first. It was also a favorite guzzle of "Serafina." (See Salty Dick's Uncensored Sailor Songs.)
