Traditional pub song
Now some folks'll tell you that drinkings a curse,|
Others'll tell you it's quite the reverse,
Some people drink all their days to employ,
Some drink in haste aye and some drink for joy,
Some drink when they're christened and some when they're wed,
Some drink your jolly good health when you're dead,
Some drink on all these occasions, like I,
For I drank at my birth and I'll drink 'til I die.
And I means to get jolly well drunk, I do,
I means to get jolly well drunk, I do,
As long as I'm here, I'll stick to my beer,
I means to get jolly well drunk, I do.
2. I'll drink 'til the high price of coal becomes small,
3. I'll drink 'til the landlords all choke as they guzzle,
