This English Drinking Song written by Henry Purcell is full of bitterness. But, rather than start a bar fight, sing this song and feel content!


Fie, nay, prithee John,
Do not quarrel man!
Let’s be merry and drink about;

You’re a rouge, you cheated me,
I’ll prove before this company,
I caren’t a farthing, sir, for all you are so stout!

Sir, you lie! I scorn your word
Or any man that wears a sword!
For all your huff, who cares a damn,
And who cares for you?
