Here’s to a long life and a merry one,
A quick death and an easy one,
A good love and an honest one,
A wee dram* and another one!
(*We whiskied this one up, it was supposed to say ‘A cold beer, and another one!)
May you be in heaven a full half hour
before the devil knows your dead.
May you live as long as you want
and never want as long as you live.
May you have warm words on a cold evening,
a full moon on a dark night,
and the road downhill all the way to your door.
May you live to be a hundred years, with one extra year to repent!
