Liedtext

Come, landlord, fill the flowing bowl,
Until it doth flow over;
Come, landlord, fill the flowing bowl,
Until it doth flow 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 drinketh little beer,
And goes to bed quite sober,
Fades as the autumn leaves do fade,
That drop off in October.

The man who drinketh lots of beer,
And goes to bed quite mellow,
Liveth as a drinker ought to live,
And dies a jolly good fellow.

And dies a jolly good fellow.
And so say all of us!

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.

Remember: He who drinks just what he likes,
And gets himself hung over
Will live until he die perhaps,
And then lie down in clover.

For tonight we'll *hick* shh!
For tonight we'll *hick* shh!
For tonight we'll *hick* ssshh!
Tomorrow we'll be sober.

At least that's what we're hoping!

And so we wish you lots of cheer
And lots of merry meetings.
And now that Christmas time is here
We send you all our greetings.

For tonight we'll *whistling*
For tonight we'll *whistling*
For tonight we'll *whistling*
Tomorrow we'll be very very sober,
very very sober!
