Three Jolly Coachmen
-author unknown

Three jolly coachmen
Sat at an English Tavern
Three Jolly Coachmen
Sat at an English Tavern
And they decided,
And they decided,
And they decided,
To have another flagon.

CHORUS
+--------------------------------------------------------------+
Landlord fill the flowing bowl
'Til it doth run over.
Landlord fill the flowing bowl
'Til it doth run over.
For tonight 'tis merry I'll be,
For tonight 'tis merry I'll be,
For tonight 'tis merry I'll be,
Tomorrow I'll be sober.
+--------------------------------------------------------------+

Here's to the man who drinks dark ale,
And goes to bed quite mellow.
Here's to the man who drinks dark ale,
And goes to bed quite mellow.
Lives as he ought to live,
Lives as he ought to live,
Lives as he ought to live,
And dies a jolly fellow.

CHORUS

Here's to the man who drinks light ale,
and goes to bed quite sober.
...
Falls as the leaves do fall,
....
He'll die before October

CHORUS

Here's to the maid who steals a kiss,
And runs to tell her mother.
...
Does a very foolish thing.
...
For she'll not get another.

CHORUS

Here's to the maid who steals a kiss,
and stays to steal another.
...
She's a boon to all mankind.
...
For soon she'll be a mother.

CHORUS

Here's to the lad who steal a kiss,
and runs to tell his brother.
...
Does a very foolish thing.
...
For brother gets another.

CHORUS

There George,  that ought to cheer you up a bit.
