Translation of “Pour boire il faut vendre”
Traditional drinking song
Anonymous

To get a drink you have to sell
To get a drink you have to sell
Sold my sweetheart’s hat I did
Sold my sweetheart’s hat I did

Sold it off for five cents cash
Spent it to get good ’n smashed

Took a tumble on my face
Lost my tuque without a trace           

Oh boy! I’m tickled pink
I’ve got money for a drink (repeat)

To get a drink you have to sell
To get a drink you have to sell
Sold my sweetheart’s dress I did
Sold my sweetheart’s dress I did

Sold it off for five cents cash
Spent it to get good ’n smashed

Took a tumble on my face
Lost my tuque without a trace

Oh boy! I’m tickled pink
I’ve got money for a drink (repeat)

To get a drink you have to sell
To get a drink you have to sell
Sold my sweetheart’s shoes I did
Sold my sweetheart’s shoes I did

Sold ‘em off for five cents cash
Spent it to get good ’n smashed

Took a tumble on my face
Lost my tuque without a trace

Oh boy! I’m tickled pink
I’ve got money for a drink (repeat)

To get a drink you have to sell
To get a drink you have to sell
Sold my sweetheart’s coat I did
Sold my sweetheart’s coat I did

Sold it off for five cents cash
Spent it to get good ’n smashed

Took a tumble on my face
Lost my tuque without a trace

Oh boy! I’m tickled pink
I’ve got money for a drink (repeat)

To get a drink you have to sell
To get a drink you have to sell

Sold my sweetheart’s gloves I did
Sold my sweetheart’s gloves I did
Sold ‘em off for five cents cash
Spent it to get good ’n smashed

Took a tumble on my face
Lost my tuque without a trace

Oh boy! I’m tickled pink
I’ve got money for a drink (repeat)

To get a drink you have to sell
To get a drink you have to sell
Sold my sweetheart’s necklace I did
Sold my sweetheart’s necklace I did

Sold it off for five cents cash
Spent it to get good ’n smashed

Took a tumble on my face
Lost my tuque without a trace

Oh boy! I’m tickled pink
I’ve got money for a drink (repeat)

To get a drink you have to sell
To get a drink you have to sell
Sold my sweetheart, yes I did
Sold my sweetheart, yes I did

Sold her off for five cents cash
Spent it to get good ’n smashed

Took a tumble on my face
Lost my tuque without a trace

Oh boy! I’m tickled pink
I’ve got money for a drink (repeat)

Sold it off for five cents cash
Spent it to get good ’n smashed

Took a tumble on my face
Lost my tuque without a trace

Oh boy! I’m tickled pink
Got no more money for a drink (repeat)
