Song for Thing's Tide           External link to tune
Tune: "Fanny Poer" by Turlough O'Carolan 

Midsummer's come and gone this year 
And now days shorten, the cold draws near 
But I'm sweating my brains right out of my ear 
So thank the gods for this ice-cold beer! 

My shoes are squishy and soaked with sweat 
And damn if the clothing I wear ain't wet 
Mosquitoes will find of me blood to get 
But those f**ers will fly away drunk, I bet!

The axe-throwing and bow-shooting go fine, I say! 
Drunk people with sharp thingies will find a way 
To get the most out of this hot, humid day 
A bunch of heathens at play! 

The beer-drinking and blot-sumbleing unify kin 
Folk passing out, crashed all about, we call "turned in" 
And the next day we wake up mouth tasting of tin 
Reminding of the fun there's been.
