--Here's to a long life and merry one.

A pretty boy and a willing one.
A cold beer--and another one.
--May you live as long as you want
And never want as long as you live
--When we drink, we get drunk.
We we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we don't sin.

--For every wound, a balm.
For every sorrow, a cheer.
For every storm, a calm.
For every thirst, a beer.
--A toast to your coffin.

And you'll have no more of my witty
When I pass on, I'll stink, 'tis true
Until that day I shall drink with you!
