Our money's all spent, to the deuce went it!

On the tap-room wall, in a very bad scrawl,
He has chalked to us a sum.

And blackberry-vines are creeping.

The Pilgrim

For passing round the bottle with girls in rags or silk,
In country shawl or Paris cloak, had put my wits astray,
And what's the good of women, for all that they can say

Or gave my heart a song.

I did my decent job and earned my pay;
Was averagely happy, I'll be bound.

The Winner

The hulk of a man with a beer in his hand looked like a drunk old fool,

He's had a whole lot of fights, and he always come out the winner.

Where its black body cut into the sky.

There is many a free French peasant who is richer and sadder than we.
