Come Landlord Fill the Flowing Bowl

Come Landlord Fill the Flowing Bowl is a splendid English 18th-century drinking song which in the course of its long life has acquired no end of verses. Some ribald, some serious, some religious (particularly for Christmas celebrations) and some simply downright interesting such as Farewell to Grog. I prefer to sing it straight in a 5-verse version found in the Daily Express Community Song Book.
