DRUNKARDS ODE

HOW WELL DO I REMEMBER,
'TWAS IN THE LATE NOVEMBER,
I WAS WALKING DOWN THE STREET QUITE FULL OF PRIDE,
MY HEART WAS ALL A-FLUTTER
AS I SLIPPED DOWN IN THE GUTTER,
AND A PIG CAME THERE AND LAID DOWN BY MY SIDE;
AND AS I LAY THERE IN THE GUTTER
ALL TOO SOUSED TO EVEN MUTTER,
A LADY PASSING BY WAS HEARD TO SAY:
ONE MAY TELL A BRUTE THAT BOOZES,
BY THE COMPANY HE CHOOSES.
HEARING THIS THE PIG GOT UP AND WALKED AWAY.
