ooe to THO 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 of Scotch or Rye.
The dog at-fifteen cashes in. Without the aid of Rum or Gin. The cat on milk and water thrives. But then at twelve it's had nine lives.
The modest, sober, bone-dry hen. Lays eggs for years, and dies at ten. Most birds at five years pass away. Far, far from alcohol they stay.
The flies but few days stay on earth. They never know the Cocktails' worth. All animals are strictly dry, They sinless live and swiftly die^" ^
But, sinful, ginful, rum-soaked men. Survive for three score years and ten. Whilst some of us, but mighty few. Stay pickled till we're ninety-two.
