W:And he that will this health deny, W: W:4 W:May love and wine their rites maintain, W:And their united pleasures reign; W:While Bacchus' treasure crowns the board W:We'll sing the joys that both afford. W:And he that won't with us comply. % % % % % % After The Campfire Song Book % My Own Song Book % The Song And The Story % Songs From Hazzards Huzzah % % % % %]
