The Philosopher’s Song
(from Monty Python’s Flying Circus)
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.
