SOCIAL REUNION: RIPPLE SONG

RIPPLE, RIPPLE R-I-DOUBLE P-L-E
RIPPLE, RIPPLE R-I-DOUBLE P-L-E
SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT RIPPLE'S JUST JUNK
BUT FOR 79 CENTS, IT'S A HELL OF A DRUNK.

RIPPLE IS NEAT AND RIPPLE IS COOL
I WISH I HAD RIPPLE IN MY SWIMMING POOL.

YOU CAN DRINK IT FROM A BOTTLE, YOU CAN DRINK IT FROM A GLASS
ANY WAY YOU DRINK IT, IT'LL KNOCK YOU ON YOUR ASS.

SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT RIPPLE'S JUST CRAP
BUT I ALWAYS KEEP RIPPLE IN MY STRAP.

WELL IT COMES IN RED AND PAGAN PINK
AND IT'LL KNOCK YOU ON YOUR ASS AFTER JUST ONE DRINK.

GET OUT THE OLD SILVER GOBLET

DRUNKARDS ODE

HOW WELL DO I REMEMBER,
TWAS IN THE LATE NOVEMBER,
I WAS WALKING DOWN THE STREET QUITE FULL OF PRIDE,
MY HEART WAS ALL A-FLUTTER
AS I SLIPPED DOWN IN THE GUTTER,
AND A PIG CAME THERE AND LAID DOWN BY MY SIDE;
AND AS I LAY THERE IN THE GUTTER
ALL TOO SOUSED TO EVEN MUTTER,
A LADY PASSING BY WAS HEARD TO SAY:
ONE MAY TELL A BRUTE THAT BOOZES,
BY THE COMPANY HE CHOOSES.
HEARING THIS THE PIG GOT UP AND WALKED AWAY.

MARY MARGARET TRUMAN WAS THE DAUGHTER OF THE PRESIDENT,

AND SHE WAS A MEMBER OF I PHELTA THIGH!
BACK IN 1952 WHEN HARRY GOT THE SHOE, LA-DE-DA
