[Chorus]
Play me a fiddle tune, sing me a song 
Banish misfortune, my time is not long 
Midnight on the water so steady and slow 
Stay up till the morning, one more for the road 
Midnight on the water, so steady and slow. 
Let's have another drink and set em up Joe 

I never thought much of that fancy dancing 
With my two left feet and my rovin' eye 
But when the band plays so slowly in 3/4 time
I could dance with my darling until morning comes

Well, I've done all my dancing down in those barrooms 
Dancing and drinking go hand in glove 
So give a beer to the fiddler, play all the old tunes 
So I can dance closer to the one that I love 

Midnight on the water so steady and slow 
Lets have another drink and set em up Joe
