Tim Hart and Maddy Prior Bring Us in Good Ale Lyrics

sponsored links
Bring us in no brown bread, for that is made of bran,
Nor bring us in no white bread, for therein is no grain,

Chorus (after each verse):
But bring us in good ale, good ale, and bring us in good ale,
For our blessed Lady's sake, bring us in good ale.
Bring us in no beef, for there are many bones,
But bring us in good ale, for that goeth down at once.

Bring us in no mutton, for that is seldom lean,
Nor bring us in no tripes, for they are seldom clean.

Bring us in no eggs, for there are many shells,
But bring us in good ale, and bring us nothing else.

Bring us in no capon's flesh, for that is often dear,
Nor bring us in no duck's flesh, for they s_____r in the mire
