THE PHILOSOPHER'S SONG - from Monty Python's Flying Circus
If for some reason you are not familiar with this quality piece of music and do not know the tune, download it here! Then you can sing along with all of your friends.
Oh....Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
Who could think you under the table
David Hume could out-consume
Willhelm Freidrich Hegel
And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel
There's nothing Nietzche couldn't teach ya
'Bout the raising of the wrist
Socrates himself was permanently pissed
John Stuart Mill of his own free will
On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill
Plato they say, could stick it away
Half a crate of whisky every day
Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle
Hobbes was fond of his dram
And Rene 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.
