Ragman Lyr Req/Add: The Fatal Glass of Beer (12) Lyr Req: Evils of Drink 02 Jan 06

In the late 60s, I heard a humorous song in a university folk song club telling the tale of a young man from a staunch god fearing family who is persuaded by his wicked student friends to try a glass of ale... The song ends with him realising the error of his ways, dashing down the half finished drink, and running outside only to be met by a young Salvation Army Lass.

The words continue along the lines of...

... and cruelly, he burst her tambourine,

All she said was "Heaven Bless You", and made a mark upon his brow
With a kick that she had learned before she was sav-ed.

So all you young men now, avoid the demon drink,
And don't go about bursting ladies' tambourines!

Maybe drink over the years has dulled my memory. Can anyone help me remember the words?
