Landlady, Count The Reckoning

Chorus
Hey tutti, taiti,
How tutti, taiti,
Hey tutti, taiti,
Who is full (drunk) now?

Landlady, count the reckoning,
The day is near the dawning;
You are all blind drunk, boys,
And I am but jolly full.

(The) Dish and you were always full,
(The) Dish and you were always full,
I would sit and sing to you,
If you were always full (drunk)!

Well may you all be!
Ill may you never see!
God bless the king
And the company!
