To Raise a Toast

Next time you're in the pub, raise a glass and sing
this song.

My intention is to die
In the tavern drinking;
Wine must be at hand, for I
Want it when I'm sinking.
Angels when they come shall cry,
At my frailties winking:
"Spare this drunkard, God, he's high,
Absolutely stinking!"

Goliardic poetry

circa 1100 A.D.
