Lyrics

Landlord fill the flowing bowl, until it doth run over.
Landlord fill the flowing bowl, until it doth run over.
For tonight we’ll merry, merry be,
For tonight we’ll merry, merry be.
For tonight we’ll merry, merry be,
To morrow we’ll be sober.

The man who drinks cold water pure,
and goes to bed quite sober, (twice)
Falls as the leaves do fall, (twice)
Falls as the leaves do fall, so early in October.

The man who drinks good whiskey clear
And goes to bed right mellow, (twice)
Lives as he ought to live, (twice)
Lives as he ought to live, and dies a jolly good fellow.

But he who drinks just what he likes,
And getteth half seas over, (twice)
Lives until he dies, (twice)
Lives until he dies, and then lies down in clover.

The little girl who gets a kiss,
And runs and tells her mother, (twice)
Does a very foolish thing, (twice)
Does a very foolish thing, and seldom gets another.
