“Bruces’ Philosophers song” fue escrita por Eric Idle. El sketch hace referencia a un grupo de australianos que todos se llaman ‘Bruce’, ellos enseñan en el departamento de filosofía de la Universidad de Woolloomooloo en Sydney. La canción hace referencia a la manera de beber de los filósofos.
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
Schopenhauer and Hegel.
And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel
There’s nothing Nietzsche couldn’t 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 partiiculary ill.
Plato, they say could stick it away
Half a crate of whiskey 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 buggar when he’s pissed.
