Tosse the Pot
TOSSE THE POT
Thomas Ravenscroft (1592-1635)
Tosse the pot, tosse the pot, let us be merry, And drink till our cheeks be red as a cherry. We take no thought, we have no care, For still we spend and never spare, Till of all our money our purse is bare, We ever tosse the pot.
Chorus. Tosse the pot, tosse the pot, etc.
We drink, carous with hart most free, A harty draught I drinke to thee ; Then fill the pot again to me, And ever tosse the pot.
Chorus. Tosse the pot, etc.
And when our mony is all spent, Then sell our goods and spend our rent, Or drinke it up with one consent, And ever tosse the pot.
Chorus. Tosse the pot. etc.
When all is gone we have no more, Then let us set it on the score, Or chalk it up behinde the dore, And ever tosse the pot.
Chorus. Tosse the pot, etc. 41
