Gather round, wee ones, and hear me tale
Of Irish Jack and his love for ale.
It all began on one Hallow's Eve
When frost lay on the turnip leaves.
Jack trudged to the pub for a pint or two.
As the night wore on, he had more than a few.
The barman said, "Jack, you've had your eight.
Go on home now, friend. 'Tis growing late."
