Hi again

The name of the song in the Bodelian Library is ONE BOTTLE MORE.

ONE BOTTLE MORE.

Assist me, ye lads, who have hearts void of guile,
To sing out the praises of ould Ireland's isle ;
Where true hospitality opens the door,
And friendship detains us for one bottle more.
One bottle more, arrah, one bottle more ;
And friendship detains us for one bottle more.

Old England, your taunts on our country forbear ;
With our bulls and our brogues we are true and sincere ;
For if but one bottle remains in our store,
We have generous hearts to give that bottle more.
One bottle more, &c.

At Candy's in Church Street, I'll sing of a set
Of six Irish blades who together had met ;
Four bottles apiece made us call for our score,
For nothing remained but just one bottle more.
One bottle more, &c.

Our bill being brought we were loath to depart,
For friendship had grappled each man by the heart,
Where the least touch, you know, makes an Irishman roar,
And the whack from shillelah brought six bottles more.
Six bottles more, &c.

Swift Phoebus now shone through our window so bright,
Quite happy to view his glad children of light ;
So we parted with hearts neither sorry nor sore,
Resolving next night to drink twelve bottles more.
Twelve bottles more, &c.

Anybody got any clues?

Fergus
