Oh - Good Lord

The Horse and Mule live thirty years,
Yet know nothing of wine and beers.

Most goats and Sheep at twenty die,
And have never tasted Scotch or Rye.

A Cow drinks water by the ton,
So at eighteen is mostly done.

The Dog in milk and water soaks,
And then in twelve years he croaks.

Your Modest sober, bone-dry Hen,
Lays eggs for Nogs, then dies at ten.

All Animals are strickly dry,
They sinless live and swiftly die.

But sinful, Ginful, beer soaked man,
Sirvives three score years and ten.

While some of us, though mighty few,
Stay sozzled till we're ninety-two.

Origin unknown.
