1936 Shaking in the 60's by Eddie Clarke
The Ode to the Soak
"The horse and mule live thirty years. They never drink light wine and beers.
The goat and sheep at twenty die, With ne'er a taste ofScotch or Rye.
The dog at fifteen cashes in.
Without the aid ofRum or Gin.
The cat on milk and water thrives. But then at twelve completes nine lives.
The modest, sober, bone dry hen, Lays eggs for years, and dies at ten.
