Bryng us in Good Ale
Bryng us in no befe, for there is many bonys, But bryng us in good ale, for that goth down at oyns; And bryng us in good ale.
Bryng us in no bacon, for that is passing fat, But bryng us in good ale, and gyfe us i-nought of that; And bryng us in good ale.
Bryng us in no mutton, for that is often lene, Nor bryng us in no trypes, for thei be syldom clene— But bryng us in good ale.
Bryng us in no eggys, for there are many schelles, But bryng us in good ale, and give us nothyng ellys— And bryng us in good ale.
Bryng us in no butter, for therein are many herys; Nor bryng us in no pygges flesch, for that will make us borys— But bryng us in good ale.
Bryng us in no podynges, for therein is al Godes good ; Nor bryng us in no venesen, for that is not for our Mod— But bryng us in good ale.
Bryng us in no capon's flesch, for that is ofte der ; Nor bryng us in no dokes flesch, for thei slober in the mer— But bryng us in good ale.
