TOO old em I to sail eny more
(He glanced at his wasted thews)
But I might uv been on the Lakes to-day
W'ere the whistles talks an' the fog hangs gray
If it hadunt 'a been fer booze.

If it hadunt a' been fer booze an' whores
(By rights this is my Prime)
O, the road is broad—but it don't go far,
Fer, no matter how good a man you are,
They'll git you every time!
