Come Landlord Fill The Flowing Bowl

  • Trad

    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

    The man who'd kiss the pretty girl and go and tell his mother
    The man who'd kiss the pretty girl and go and tell his mother
    Ought to have his lips cut off, ought to have his lips cut off
    Ought to have his lips cut off
    And never kiss another

    The man who drinks his small ale and goes to bed right sober
    The man who drinks his small ale and goes to bed right sober
    Fades as the leaves do fade, fades as the leaves do fade
    Fades as the leaves do fade
    And drop off in October

    But the man who drinks his real ale and goes to bed right mellow
    But the man who drinks his real ale and goes to bed right 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

    As sung by The Spinners
