Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Text: Taking his beer with old Anacharsis,‥


Taking his beer with old Anacharsis,
quoth surly swashbuckler, “Your wife, Sir, mine arse is,”
“Vous avez,” quoth sage, “she’s a homely brown lass,
but after a bumper or two she may pass,”
his advice was so right,
it converted Sir Knight,
who all his life after drank Saturday night.
