Sporty Ougrée is sitting at the bar


“There’s a place for everything,
Everything, anything, 
There’s a place for everything 
Where it ought to be: 
For a chicken, the hen’s wing; 
For poison, the bee’s sting;
For almond-blossom, Spring; 
A beerhouse for me.” 

(R. Graves in Strong beer)

"Let us drink and sport today;
Ours is not tomorrow.
Love with youth flies swift away,
Age is naught but sorrow."

Seats of honour

“Farewell, my joy!
Adieu, my love and pleasure!
To sport and toy
We have no longer leisure.
Fa la la!

Farewell, adieu
Until our next consorting!
Sweet love, be true!
And thus we end our sporting.
Fa la la!”

(From Lyrics from the Song-Books of the Elizabethan Age)

Le monde entier
Le Standard
Oui oui oui
Le Standard
Oui oui oui
En avant
En avant le Standard
Allons les rouges
Allons les rouges
Allons les rouges et blancs.”

Away flies the boy
To the destin'd post
And then home with joy."
