Lyrics

Hunger ever present from the dawn of man
Knee deep in the river with a spear in hand
Fire in the cave children wrapped in fur
Mushroom boiling in a bowl they need a stir
Clan of low brows passing at the crack of dusk
With an ember of coal in a mammoth tusk
Standing at the doorway asking Where ya been
We've got a fire going won't you come on in for some

Firewater & Fish sit down and have a dish
As many drinks as you wish
You're in my cave now
Let's get out of our head
See God then go to bed
Be thankful that we're fed
You're in my cave now

Sailor on adventure in the western sea
Must've gotten sick of all that tea
Sailing through the thickness of an ocean fog
Became a whole lot easier when they made grog
Copper tubes potatoes and a home made still
Always a way to get drunk if you have the will
Isolation eases with some levity
See a passing ship and shout Ahoy Matey let's have some

Firewater & Fish sit down and have a dish
As many drinks as you wish
You're on my ship now
Drop your anchor mate
Let's drink until it's late
No point in sailing straight
You're on my ship now

Natives named it firewater cause it burns
White man never cared it wasn't his concern
Nifty trick if you ask me to steal the land
Greedy acquisition's getting outta hand
Centre of the elder pride remains in tact
But the government went and made the injun act
Christ would tell you don't you know that it's a sin
If your friend's outside and you don't invite them in for some

Firewater & Fish sit down and have a dish
As many drinks as you wish
You're in my house now
Have a piece of dry meat maybe a whiskey neat
Take a load off your feet
You're in my house now

Firewater & Fish sit down and have a dish
As many drinks as you wish
You're in my house now
Have a piece of dry meat maybe a whiskey neat
Take a load off your feet
You're in my house now
