Song Lyrics
Verse 1

And now we've drunk our master's health our mistress shan't go free
I hope to God with all my heart she'll rest as well as he,
And that all her works may prosper whatever she takes in hand,
For we are all her servants and are at her command:
Then drink, boys, drink, and see you do not spill,
For if you do you shall drink two, it is your mistress' will
