The Lyrics

My love and me, lived all alone, in the little pretty house we called our own...
The other Sunday I went to cellar
that's where my batch of turnips brewed;
I heard the bubbling of yeasty water
as the strength of the hooch grew and grew...

You are my moonshine, my home-made moonshine
You'll make me happy when I feel blue
Just me and my dear are ones to brew you
and we'll sure make the best out of you

My dear prepared a Liebig cooler
and pack-ed column of stainless steel
He filled it up with the finest steel wool
He made it perfect, now that's how I feel

You are my moonshine, my home-made moonshine
You'll make me happy when I feel blue
Just me and my dear, who will distill you
and we'll sure make the best out of you

Tomorrow evening we will decant you
and boil you through our home-made still
it's nintety-percent stuff what we turn you
with five ideal stages as fill

You are my moonshine, my home-made moonshine
You'll make me happy when I feel blue
Just me and my dear are ones to blend you
and we'll sure make the best out of you

That strenght white lightning is pretty strong and
with fresh spring water we'll you dilute;
We'll mix in berries, and herbs and spices
and we'll sure make the best out of you!

You are my moonshine, my hand-made moonshine
You'll make me happy when I feel blue
Just me and my dear will sure enjoy you
as we have made - our own liqueur - from you!
According to McCabe-Thiele method, five ideal stages on packed column is enough to produce 90% (180 proof) white lightning when the base product is dilute. Home distillation is a common hobby in Scandinavia, thanks to the prohibition-like alcohol laws.

i thought the pacing was a little forced at times, but not bad...it certainly sounds like you know a lot about the subject, though
