    Lyrics to The Philosopher's Drinking Song :
    Immanuel Kant was a real piss-ant who was very rarely stable.
    Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar who could think you under the table. ..

    David Hume could out-consume Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.
    And Wittgenstein was a beery swine who was just as sloshed as Schlegel.
    There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teach 'ya 'bout the raising of the wrist.
    Socrates, himself, was permanently pissed.
    John Stuart Mill, of his own free will, after half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.
    Plato, they say, could stick it away, half a crate of whiskey every day!
    Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle,
    And Hobbes was fond of his Dram.
    And René Descartes was a drunken fart:
    "I drink, therefore I am."
    Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed;
    A lovely little thinker, but a bugger when he's pissed.
