lyrics

Mother, dear Mother, the church is cold
But the ale house is healthy, pleasant and warm

Besides I can tell when I am used well
Such usage in heaven would never do well!
But if at the church they would give us some ale
And a pleasant fire, our souls to regale
Then we'd sing and we'd pray all thew live-long day
Nor ever once wish from the church to stray!
Then the parason might preach and drink and sing
And we'd be as happy as birds in the spring
And have no more quarrel with the devil or the barrel
But kiss him and give him both drink and apparel

Dear Mother, dear Mother, the church is cold
But the ale house is healthy, pleasant and warm
