Then up comes bouncing Suzy, her cheeks as red as bloom
“Move up me jolly sisters and give young Suzy room
For I will be your equal before the night is out.”
These four drunken maidens they pushed the jug about

There’s woodcock and there’s pheasant, there’s partridge and there’s hare
There’s all sorts of dainties; no scarcity was there
There’s forty quarts of beer, me boys, they nearly drunk them out
These four drunken maidens, they pushed the jug about

Then up and comes the landlord; he’s asking for his pay
It’ a forty shilling bill, me boys, these gals have got to pay
That’s ten bob apiece, me boys, but still they wouldn’t go out
These four drunken maidens, they pushed the jug about

“Oh, where are your feathered hats, your mantles rich and fine?”
“They’ve all been swallowed up, me boys, in tankards of good wine.”
“And where are your maidenheads, you maidens brisk and gay?”
“We left them in the alehouse, we drank them clean away!”
