    SONG LYRICS
     
    A Health to the Company
     
    Kind friends and companions, come join me in rhyme
    Come lift up your voices in chorus with mine
    Come lift up your voices, all grief to refrain
    For we may or might never all meet here again
    So here's a health to the company and one to my lass
    Let's drink and be merry all out of one glass
    Let's drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
    For we may or might never all meet here again
    Here's a health to the wee lass that I love so well
    For style and for beauty there's none can excel
    There's a smile on her countenance as she sits upon my knee
    There is no man in this wide world as happy as me
    So here's a health to the company and one to my lass
    Let's drink and be merry all out of one glass
    Let's drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
    For we may or might never all meet here again
    Our ship lies at anchor, she is ready to dock
    I wish her safe landing without any shock
    And if ever I should meet you by land or by sea
    I will always remember your kindness to me
    So here's a health to the company and one to my lass
    Let's drink and be merry all out of one glass
    Let's drink and be merry, all grief to refrain
    For we may or might never all meet here again
     
     
    John Barleycorn
     
    There were three men, came out of the west
    Their fortunes for to try
    And these three men made a solemn vow
    John Barleycorn must die!
    Well, they've ploughed,
    They've sown, they've harrowed him in
    Threw clouds upon his head
    Till these three men were satisfied
    John Barleycorn was dead
    They've let him lie for a long long time
    Till the

Reviewers Welcome ,

Lots of Fun

Sort of a Celtic version of our American "a Prairie Home Companion". Well done with lots of skits and songs. 1001 thanks and keep up the good work!

claxxon ,

this podcast is awful!

I have listened to this podcasts for a long time, and it just keeps getting worse. the only good thing about this podcast is the music. The hosts have always sounded like they wish they were someplace else. I wish they would try to make more of a show of it. Hearing thick southern accents lacadasically tell me about the next ren thing kills it for me. Or the past hosts badly trying on renniassance accents while speaking in what can only be described as a drug induced cadence was, and still is AWFUL!

Kababco ,

Great variety of music

Love the bawdy songs!
