A Tankard of Ale
FROM "NEW YEAR'S DAY1
By John Davidson (1837-1909)
Basil
Sing hey for the journalist!
He is your true soldado ;
Both time and chance he'll lead a dance,
And find out Eldorado.
Brian
Sing hey for Eldorado !
Basil A catch, a catch, we'll trowl S
Brian
Sing hey for Eldorado !
Sandy And bring a mazer bowl, With ale a-frothing brimmed.
Brian We may not rest without it.
Sandy With dainty ribbons trimmed, And love-birds carved about it.
1 Fleet Street Eclogues. 142
