Traditional Down Down Song

Here's to _____, he's true blue.
He's a hasher through and through,
He's a pisspot so they say.
Tried to get to heaven,
But he went the other way.
Drink it down, down, down, down,
Down, down, down, down,
Down, down, down, down,
Down, down, down, down.

(Continue or go to "Why Are We Waiting")

Why Was He (She) Born So Beautiful?

(Done as a tribute to hasher, usually after a down down song, but sometimes as the down down song)

Why was he (she) born so beautiful,
Why was he (she) born at all.
He's (she's) no fucking use to anyone,
He's (she's) no fucking use at all.
He (she) might be a joy to his (her) mother,
But he's (she's) a pain in the ass to me!
(Sometimes mooning the recipient)

(If used as a down down song:)
Drink it down, down, down, down,
Down, down, down, down,
Down, down, down, down,
Down, down, down, down.
(Continue until down down is finished, or go into "Why are you waiting")

(Alternate verse for harriette:
Why was she born so beautiful?
Why was she born a bitch?
She's no bloody use to anyone,
She's only got one tit.

 

Hash Hymn

Swing low sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.

I looked over Jordan,
And what did I see,
Coming for to carry me home,
A band of angels,
Coming after me,
Coming for to carry me home.

Swing low sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.

If you get there before I do,
Coming for to carry me home,
Tell my friends I'm coming too,
Coming for to carry me home.

Swing low sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.
