The horse and mule live 30 years
and nothing know of wine and beers.
The goat and sheep they also die,
without a taste of Scotch and Rye.
The cow drinks water by the ton,
but by 18, she's mostly done.
Without the aid of Rum or Gin,
the dog at 15 cashes in.
The cat in milk and water soaks,
and then in 12 short years it croaks.
The modest sober dry-bone hen,
lays egg for nogs and dies at 10.
All animals are strictly dry;
they sinless live and swiftly die.
But sinful ginful rum-soaked men,
survive by three scores years and ten.
And some of us, a mighty few,
keep drinking till we're 92.
As long as I can say
sophtisitcaed.. Im just
see!?.. I'm just fine!..
