Traditional
  1. 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.
  2. The man who drinketh small beer And goes to bed quite sober,
    Fades as the leaves do fade That drop off in October.
    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.
  3. The man who drinketh strong beer And goes to bed right mellow,
    Lives as he ought to live, And dies a jolly fellow.
    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.
  4. But he who drinks just what he likes And getteth half seas over,
    Will live until he die, perhaps, And then lie down in clover.
    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.
  5. The man who kisses a pretty girl And goes and tells his mother,
    Ought to have his lips cut off, And never kiss another.
    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.
  6. The maiden who enjoys a kiss and comes back for another,
    She’s a boon to all mankind and soon to be a mother.
    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.
  7. Come into the garden Maud And don’t be so particular,
    For if the grass is very very wet, We’ll do it perpendicular.
    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.
  8. If I had a pile of bricks I’d build my chimney higher.
    That would stop the neighbour’s cat from pissing in the fi-er.
    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.
