One night as I lay in slumber,
Strange phantoms obstructed my rest.
I thought I had been and old empress
When Bacus those words he expressed
"No longer I'll stay here to tarry
But I'll soon change my place of abode
And hasten to Upperwoods Bowers
To booze upon Camross Roads".
The muses all said they'ed come with me
They ordered a famed flying horse
Great Cupid has caused his assistance
Menervo, Apollo and Mars,
They ordered a strict resolution
For to go along with gay Bacus
To booze upon Camross Roads.
There is mechanieal sportsmen
Well known by the cold winding train
He takes many rural excursions
Which makes him be admired by the swain
Whoever attacks in drinking
And drinks his glass free without move
Will find a difficult task to
Go sober from Camross Roads.
