A healthy and pleasant fire

Rechter_zijgevel_-_Rijswijk_-_20187977_-_RCE.jpg
It is a healthy and pleasant fire
our souls to regale
we’d sing and warm
besides
I can tell where I am used well
such usage in heaven with their spears
and we’d pray
all the live-long day
nor ever once wish from the church that’s cold
but the ale-house is healthy and pleasant and happy as birds
and the parson might preach
and drink
and sing
and we’d pray
all the live-long day
nor ever once wish
from the church they would give him drink
and sing.
