When I was young and cradle cake
No drop of milk now would I take
Me father up, then had his spake
“Give the child a jar of porter”

When I am dead and in my grave
I hope for me a prayer you’ll say
And as you’re passing by that you’ll
Throw in a jar of porter

And when I reach the golden gates
I hope I’ll not have long to wait
I’ll call Saint Peter aside and say
“Brought you a jar of porter”
