Drunk with Deena

October 2, 1999 (AS XXXIV)

Welcome Bacchus, welcome here
Great among the barrels
Grant us all of drinking’s joys
Shield us from its’ perils!

CHORUS:
          Drunk with Deena, bonny Deena
          Deena famed in fable
          Only if you really love
          The floor under the table!

Let the wine and spirits flow
Free as any river
Who among us after all
Really needs a liver?
          CH

Give me drink to grease my throat,
Be it coarse or gentle;
I will sing a mighty queen,
Sovereign Occidental!
          CH

She can dance and she can sing,
She can play tablero
She could tempt an anchorite
From the straight and narrow
          CH

Prudent folk and temperate
They may disavorw us
Even so they marvel at
Deena’s drinking prowess
          CH

Hardy knights it may behoove
You to take a warning
Lest upon the rushes you
Come to in the morning
          CH

When sobriety’s at stake
It is in judicious
Daring Deena at the dice
Queen most Babe-A-Licious
          CH

Stories of the saints are told
Teach us to live giving
Deena tales are passed along
Teach us to love living
          CH

There’s a keg that might be full
Sitting on the pantry shelf
If you want more of this song
You must sing it for yourself!
          CH
