A Drunken Mans Praise Of Sobriety

 Come swish around, my pretty punk,
And keep me dancing still
That I may stay a sober man
Although I drink my fill.
Sobriety is a jewel That I do much adore; And therefore keep me dancing Though drunkards lie and snore.
O mind your feet, O mind your feet, Keep dancing like a wave, And under every dancer A dead man in his grave.
No ups and downs, my pretty, A mermaid, not a punk; A drunkard is a dead man, And all dead men are drunk.
