That Couple That Starts Singing Whenever They’ve Had A Few

My mom’s family would always break into song when playing cards and drinking. They mostly sang traditional Scottish songs with Grandpa on his mandolin, Uncle Allen on the harmonica and Grandma playing the spoons. It was a lot more fun than it sounds.
I almost called this one “Have a Wee Deoch an Doris and Give us a Chorus”
There’s an old Scottish song called “A Wee Deoch An' Doris” my grandparents used to sing. The term “deoch-an-doris” translates literally to 'Drink of the door' or providing one last drink before a guest leaves.
In America, it’s called “One for the Road” or “Looking to Get Pulled Over”. :-\
