The Star Spangled Banana

In the Original Olde English (you know the tune):

To Anacreon in Heaven

To Anacreon in heaven
Where he sat in full glee,
A few sons of harmony sent a petition,
That he their inspirer
And patron would be,
When this answer arrived
From the jolly old Grecian:
Voice, fiddle and flute,
No longer be mute,
I'll lend you my name
And inspire you to boot!
And besides I'll instruct you
Like me to entwine
The myrtle of Venus
And Bacchus's vine.
