Treasure Island

Bring Us All Some Ale


We trudged along the dusty road
For many a weary mile
Our feet were sore from walking
And our legs about to fail.
At last we found to our delight
A golden tavern in the night

Chorus:
Bring us all some ale lass
Bring us all some ale.
Never mind the little glass
Just bring it by the pail
We need the golden nectar
To revive our manly strength,
To demonstrate our prowess
And exaggerate our length

The company gets boisterous
They laugh and shout and sing,
They dance upon the table tops
And make the alehouse ring
Alas we find to our dismay
That we’ve been robbed along the way.
Chorus
The barman calls the constable
To arrest us for our crime
Its off to a dungeon drear and dark
To sleep off our good time.
He wakes us in the morning when
The Abbot bails us out again.

Chorus

Bring us all some ale lass
Bring us all some ale.
Never mind the little glass
Just bring it by the pail
We need the golden nectar
To revive our manly strength,
To demonstrate our prowess
And exaggerate our length
Bring us all some ale lass
Bring us all some ale.
Never mind the little glass
Just bring it by the pail

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
