This is part of the complete Exercises in Song cycle being released on this site.

"Polyptotes " is a bonus exercise, not to be found in Raymond Queneau's original Exercices de Style nor in the translations.

To be sung to the tune of "Show Me The Way To Go Home". More information here.

I haven’t yet drunk my fill
Of drinking till I start feeling ill.
Still, every drinker ought to have somewhere called home:
Will I drink to that? I will.

I drank up foreign lands,
Crossing drunken seas, hot sands.
Yet my drunkenness repeats its refrain:
Give it the drinks it demands!
