Proclaim Our Faith With Ringing Cheers

Proclaim our faith with ringing cheers...

From: Why Not Grow Young

Proclaim our faith with ringing cheers;
By trumpet let the truth be told:
A man may live a hundred years . . .
Let us grow young instead of old.

OH, how I love to souse my throttle
With rich red wine from dusty bottle:
Alas! my doctor says I oughter
Drink only tea and Vichy water.

I'd love to puff a panatella
With any other lusty fella;
Alas! if I should chance to wish one:
"Tabac's tabooed!" shrieks my physician.
