Here's to the maiden

"Here's to the maiden" is an absolute treasure of song that I found in Folk Songs of the British Isles. What could be finer than combining drinking with praising both the virtues and vices in all their variations of the "gentler sex". The lyrics are attributed to Richard Brinsley Sheridan and the melody orignates from Chappell's "Popular Music of the Olden Time" (1859).
