Bar Songs in the Bible

I can't be certain, but I believe the Bible quotes an ancient bar song:

15 On that day Tyre will be forgotten for 70 years—the life span of one king. At the end of 70 years, what the song [says] about the prostitute will happen to Tyre:

16 Pick up [your] harp,
stroll through the city,
prostitute forgotten [by men].
Play skillfully,
sing many a song,
and you will be thought of again.

-- Isaiah 23:16 (HCSB) --
