A chance meeting at the bar!
Song for Gloria

Hello, you come here often?
I think you dropped this hankie.
My name? It’s Harry Coffen,
and what be yours? I thankee.
Gloria, a lovely name indeedy!
Gloria, your voice is wondrous reedy!

Now then, what’s that you’re drinking?
Let me buy you another.
You downed that very quick, I’m thinking,
you’re drunker than my brother.
Gloria, you seem to be unsteady!
Gloria, please meet my brother Freddy!

He’ll look after you this time,
I’ve just remembered something,
another’s promised to be mine,
and wedding bells are ringing.
Gloria, I know it must sound seedy!
Gloria, the fact is I’m just greedy!

Rewritten carol - Ding dong, Merrily on High
For Bah Humbug!
Prompt: Rewrite a carol so that it's no longer Christmassy.
