The Philosophers' Song

Immanuel Kant was a real pissant,
who was very rarely stable.
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar,
who couldn't drink you under the table.

jemand, der vom Trinken soviel versteht, wie ein Bettler Geld hat

David Hume could out-consume
Schopenhauer and Hegel
Wittgenstein was a beery swine,
who was just as sloshed as Schlegel

sloshed = völlig dicht, endgültig zu

There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teach you,
'bout the raising of the wrist.
Sokrates himself was permanently pissed.

to be pissed = suboptimal drauf sein

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 whiskey every day.

shandy = nahezu alkoholfreies Bier

crate = Kiste

Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle.
Hobbes was fond of his dram
And René Descartes was a drunken fart
"I drink therefore I am"

dram = mächtiger Zug am Leibe
fart = rektale Ventilation

Yes, Sokrates, himself, is particularly missed
A lovely little thinker,
But a bugger when he's pissed.

bugger = ziemlich unangenehme Person
