DRINK LET'S DRINK

Winter time is here
And the nights are very long
The days are very short
But we sing a merry song
We sing it loud we sing it clear
To help the year along
Till summer is a comin' in again

Sooo.. drink let's drink
And raise a merry glass
Drink to the scent of the rising grass
For every good man
Every woman, lad and lass
Sing summer is a comin' in again

I have been in tonight and checked the beer. I can recommend it. The Burns Special (4.5%) is adequately bitter, with a somewhat malty front end, a clean and lemony, sightly fragrant, midrange (presumably to cut through the grease in the haggis), and a smooth finish without the sulphurous aftertaste that is so common and that I so detest.

We drank the barrel out apart from 8 pints last time. Let's do better this time.

Some young people who were enjoying the karaoke tonight may come too!

Has anyone got "Bring us a barrell" clear for this time - or that other one that I think Ramskyte recorded

"Drink boys, drink, and see that ye do not spill, for if ye do ye shall drink two, for that is our master's will"

Or the Frenchy one.

Thank you for that Jock.

I understand we will be getting some roastpotatoes - not wholly Burns-ish. I considered buying a haggis today but thought it would look rude to walk in with it slice it up and hand it round - and I was NOT going to get involved in mashing turnips!

11 - and another to sing about how brutally the socket was raped by the alien insertion and then gave birth to light.

12 - and another to sing of how the brothers of the socket would avenge it by leaving the lightbulb to the wolves in the woods.

Bt I DO like the idea of re-arranging the well known round "Ah Poor Bird"

Ah poor bulb
Take thy light
Far above the sorrows
Of this sad night.

Only messing about seriously me Woodsie and Fisheye will be there by opening time so if theres any furniture arranging and table setting to be done Im happy to help.
I dont do furniture moving when the session started and crowded simply because it bloody dodgy to be seen Cav-vaulting about a packed room with tables chairs held aloft .Pissed. its a bloody Par-larva and Its a easy way to have someones eye out or worse. Has I learned at Crayford trying to get Jim Radford a Chair from the other Bar. folk dont take kindly to having a chair leg in the Earhole.

And someone had better bring Wee Jock, as I doubt if anyone else can get the words of this right (it being Burns Night)


ADDRESS TO A HAGGIS

Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o the puddin'-race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy of a grace
As lang's my arm.

The groaning trencher there ye fill,
Your hurdies like a distant hill,
Your pin wad help to mend a mill
In time o need,
While thro your pores the dews distil
Like amber bead.

His knife see rustic Labour dight,
An cut you up wi ready slight,
Trenching your gushing entrails bright,
Like onie ditch;
And then, O what a glorious sight,
Warm-reekin, rich!

Then, horn for horn, they stretch an strive:
Deil tak the hindmost, on they drive,
Till a' their weel-swall'd kytes belyve
Are bent like drums;
The auld Guidman, maist like to rive,
'Bethankit' hums.

Is there that owre his French ragout,
Or olio that wad staw a sow,
Or fricassee wad mak her spew
Wi perfect sconner,
Looks down wi sneering, scornfu view
On sic a dinner?

Poor devil! see him owre his trash,
As feckless as a wither'd rash,
His spindle shank a guid whip-lash,
His nieve a nit:
Thro bloody flood or field to dash,
O how unfit!

But mark the Rustic, haggis-fed,
The trembling earth resounds his tread,
Clap in his walie nieve a blade,
He'll make it whissle;
An legs an arms, an heads will sned,
Like taps o thrissle.

Ye Pow'rs, wha mak mankind your care,
And dish them out their bill o fare,
Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware
That jaups in luggies:
But, if ye wish her gratefu prayer,
Gie her a Haggis
