Thread Name: Welsh Drinking Songs
Subject: RE: Welsh Drinking Songs
I've heard that to the tune of Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah. It went:
Alwys eat when you are hungry,
Always drink when you are dry.
Always rest when you are weary,
Don't stop breathing or you'll die.
Bread from Hovis
Tea from Liptons
Beer from the Miner's Arms (Miner's Arms)
Beer from the Miner's Arms.
A Welsh drinking song is a bit of a Zen concept, if you ask me.
