Written when times were dull, and Golden Ale want ed a market—many years ago. What’s the world to a man without children and wife, Ho may toil, be may strive, the whole length of his life, Let him drink Golden Ale, and his spirits ’twill cheer. Till the glow on his cheek draws some kind creature near. Let him drink Golden Ale, and soon wedded he’ll lie; , How his heart will expand when a babe's on bis knee; Let him never imbibe till his spouse have a share, And blessings and peace will for ever be there. The old maiden, too, had long thought to herself, When no kind hand was near, she must get on the sbelf; But she tried Golden Ale, and Its magical train Brought beauty and youth to her cheek once again. And ’overs in scores to her cottage repair, Youth blooms on her cheeks and raven’s her hair, Once again in her teens she’s the Belle of the Vale, And is doatingly fond of the famed Golden Ale. The old and the young to be hearty and hale, Should each day imbibe of this bright Golden Ale, And their cellars well store for the cold winter's night As 'tie health to the sick, to the blind It is light.
