The Jug of Punch
Last updated: 24.01.17

"The Jug of Punch" is yet another song that I transcribed from a The Clancy Brothers recording and which we sang a lot in the Idle Fellows. In fact it was one of the very earliest songs in our repertoire. This song is very Irish in its glorification of alcohol. It's philosophy reminds one of one of the verses in the Rubiat of Omar Kyahm (a book of verse, a glass of wine and thou) "What more diversion can a man desire, than to sit him down by a good turf fire. Upon his knee a pretty wench, aye, and on the table a jug of punch."
