Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Text: At the close of the evening‥

At the close of the evening, the watches were set,
the guards went the round, and the “Tatatatoo” was beat,
but now yonder stars appear in the sky,
and “Tararara, rararara” is sounded on high,
we shall soon be relieved, then drink away,
here’s to you, and to you, let us drink till ’tis day.
