“The horse and cow live thirty years,
They never touch light wine nor beers.
Sheep and goats are dead at twenty.
At ten the cat has lost nine lives,
On milk and water no beast thrives.
At five, the birds are mostly dead,
They look not on the wine that’s red.
Bugs few day remain on earth,
They do not know the cock-tail’s worth.
But awful, wicket rum-soaked men,
Live on for three score years and ten!”
