Subject: RE: Anti-alcohol, temperance songs
Steeley Span recorded a song called "The Drunkard". The tune's wonderful, but I have trouble hitting the top notes.
Mother used to sing a version of "Father dear father", with the chorus,
          "Oh the doors swing in and the doors swing out!"
          "And some pass in, while others pass out!"
          "Your father I fear, is having a beer, behind those    swinging doors"
