Original text and translations
Here's a health, a health,
pray let it pass about.
A health that ne'er shall cease till all our wine is out;
Therefore drink away, and never let it stand,
But ply it closely round, from hand to hand.
And eagerly and bravely with courage thus persue it.
For tis a health, a health to honest ruddy Roger Hewett.
