G5 There was a knockin' at my door C5 G5 It's the dreaded landlord C5 G5 D5 G5 He wants his rent and wants it now, he is careless how Eb5 Bb5 C5 D5 C5 He left us in a vacant daze, asking how we got here. G5 D5 A5 G5 And we retired to slumber but, the glasses never were rinsed.

Eb5 Bb5 A5 Make yourself the things I don't use. G5 D5 A5 G5 For I'm off into the forest for a liquor never brewed!" C5 G5 And somewhere there's a sound of someone singing D5 G5 I got an invitation once to liberty Eb5 G5 They had a mischief brew but, not goblets were used A5 A5 Bb5 A5 Besting rum or porter 'tis a liquor never brewed.
