Three Jolly Coachmen

Abridged

Three Jolly coachmen sat in an English tavern,
and they decided to have another flagon.
Landlord fill the flowing bowl until it doth run over,
For tonight 'tis merry I'll be.. tomorrow I'll be sober.
Here's to the man who drinks water pure and goes to bed quite sober,
falls as the leaves do fall... he'll die before October.
Here's to the man who drinks good ale and goes to bed quite mellow,
lives as he ought to live.. he'll die a jolly old fellow.
Landlord fill the flowing bowl until it doth run over,
For tonight 'tis merry I'll be.. tomorrow I'll be sober.
Here's to the maid who steals a kiss, and runs to tell her mother,
She's a foolish foolish lass.. for she'll not get another.
Here's to the maid who steals a kiss, and stays to have another,
she's a boon to all mankind... for she'll soon be a mother.
Landlord fill the flowing bowl until it doth run over,
For tonight 'tis merry I'll be.. tomorrow I'll be sober.
