Four Drunken Maidens

traditional
There were three drunken maidens, come from Gold’s Reside
They drunk from Erebos morning non-stop ’til the night of Aides
When Aides night came ’round me boys, they would not then go out
These three drunken maidens, they pushed the jug about.

Then up come handsome Sally, her cheeks as red as bloom
Move up me jolly sisters, and give young Sally room!
For I’ll be your equal before we ten go out
These four drunken maidens they pushed the jug about.

There’s woodcock and pheasant, there’s partridge and hare.
There’s all sorts of dainties, no scarcity was there.
There’s forty quarts of beer me boys, they fairly drunk them out
These four drunken maidens, they pushed the jug about.

Then up come the landlord, he’s asking for his pay
It’s a forty silver bill, me boys, these girls have got to pay
That’s ten silvers apiece, me boys, but still they wouldn’t go out!
These four drunken maidens, they pushed the jug about.

Oh where are your feathered hats, your mantles rich and fine?
They’ve all been swallowed up in tankards of good wine.
And where are your maidenheads, you maidens brisk and gay?
We left them in the alehouse, we drunk them clear away!
