Bring us in good Ale

Text:

Bring us in good ale, and bring us in good ale;
For our Blessed Lady’s sake, bring us in good ale.

1. Bring us in no brown bread, for that is made of bran,
Nor bring us in no white bread, there therein is no game;
But bring us in good ale.

2. Bring us in no beef, for there is many bones,
But bring us in good ale, for that goes down at once;
And bring us in good ale.

3. Bring us in no bacon, for that is passing fat,
But bring us in good ale, and give us enough of that;
And bring us in good ale.

4. Bring us in no mutton, for that is often lean,
Nor bring us in no tripes, for they be seldom clean;
And bring us in good ale.

5. Bring us in no eggs, for there are many shells,
But bring us in good ale, and give us nothing else;
And bring us in good ale.

6. Bring us in no butter, for therein are many hairs;
Nor bring us in no pig’s flesh, for that will make us boars;
And bring us in good ale.

7. Bring us in no puddings, for therein is all God’s good;
Nor bring us in no venison, for that is not for our blood;
And bring us in good ale.

8. Bring us in no capon’s flesh, for that is often dear;
Nor bring us in no duck’s flesh, for they slobber in the mere;
And bring us in good ale.
