Come Landlord Fill the Flowing Bowl

This is a traditional song with a long pedigree with BatSoc and Hrafn.


Three jolly coachmen went to a Bristol tavern.

Three jolly coachmen went to a Bristol tavern.

And they decided,

And they decided,

And they decided

To have another flagon.


CHORUS

Come landlord fill the flowing bowl until it doth run over.

Come 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,

Tomorrow we’ll be sober.


Here’s to the man who drinks light ale and goes to bed quite sober

Here’s to the man who drinks light ale and goes to bed quite sober

Fades as the leaves do fade,

Fades as the leaves do fade,

Fades as the leaves do fade,

And drops off in October.


Here’s to the man who drinks strong beer and goes to bed quite mellow

Here’s to the man who drinks strong beer 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 good fellow.


Here’s to the girl who steals a kiss and runs to tell her mother

Here’s to the girl who steals a kiss and runs to tell her mother

She’s a very foolish thing,

She’s a very foolish thing,

She’s a very foolish thing,

She’ll never get another.


Here’s to the girl who steals a kiss and comes back for another

Here’s to the girl who steals a kiss and comes back for another

She’s a boon to all mankind,

She’s a boon to all mankind,

She’s a boon to all mankind,

She’ll very soon be a mother.
