Four Drunken Monks
A Trappist from quaint Winnipeg
Loved Gregorian, named for Pope Greg.
He would chant up a storm
Whether chilly or warm,
Then he'd quaff pints of ale by the keg.
A Dominican friar named Bruce
Loved the wine that fat grapes would produce:
He would drink with such grace,
And grow red in the face,
Then he'd fall down upon his caboose.
Brother Andrew (his friends called him Andy)
Would never say no to a brandy:
Oh, he'd feel so alive
That instead of Psalm 5
He would sing Barry Manilow's "Mandy"!
Father Odo, a monk from Calais,
Was so spirited, carefree, and gay.
He once tried (and how!)
To milk beer from a cow:
"She won't give you that!" "Well, Chimay."
