A toast for the new year

EDITOR – With much toasting over Christmas and New Year, this is a toast my mother used to say.

It must be 100 years old, and with the right intonation on the last two lines is very funny:

Here’s to you,

as good as you are

Here’s to me,

as bad as I am,

But as good as you are,

and as bad as I am,

I’m as good as you are,

as bad as I am
