Bring Us in Good Ale

Bring us in no brown bread for that is made of bran
Nor bring us in no white bread for therein is no gain
But bring us in good ale, good ale,
And bring us in good ale.

For our blessed lady's sake,
Bring us in good ale.

Bring us in no beef for there are many bones
But bring us in good ale for that we will down at once
And bring us in good ale —

Bring us in no mutton for that is seldom lean
Nor bring us in no tripes for they are seldom clean
But bring us in good ale —

Bring us in no eggs for there are many shells
But bring us in good ale and bring us nothing else
And bring us in good ale —

Bring us in no capon's flesh for that is often dear
Not bring us in no ducks flesh that slobber in the mire
But bring us in good ale —
