Desist, Whoreson Knave, Lest Great Cudgellings Befall Thee

To count the rings of Saturn [Roland]

While kneeling on one knee [TG]

To pin the knitting-pattern [Anon.]

Upon the count of three [TG]

To sanctify each slattern [Roland]

Will be the death of me [TG]

To count the rings of Redwood [Roland]

Without the use of saw [TG]

To love my sister Edward [Roland]

Without recourse to law [TG]

And then to slink home, bed-ward [Roland]

Will leave me whipped quite raw [TG]

So why not spurn ambition [Roland]

And turn our minds from sin [TG]

Be mindful of perdition [Roland]

And welcome Jesus in [TG]

Make piety your mission [Roland]

But don't forget the gin! [TG]
