      BEER, BEER, BEER
      A long time ago, way back in history,
      when all there was to drink was nothin but cups of tea.
      Along came a man by the name of Charlie Mops,
      and he invented a wonderful drink and he made it out of hops.

      He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
      and to his praises we shall always sing.
      Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
      Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
      tiddly beer beer beer.

      The Curtis bar, the James' Pub, the Hole in the Wall as well
      one thing you can be sure of, its Charlie's beer they sell
      so all ye lads a lasses at eleven O'clock ye stop
      for five short seconds, remember Charlie Mops 1 2 3 4 5

      He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
      and to his praises we shall always sing.
      Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
      Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
      tiddly beer beer beer.

      A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick,
      the kind of lubrication to make your engine tick.
      40 pints of wallop a day will keep away the quacks.
      Its only eight pence hapenny and one and six in tax, 1 2 3 4 5

      He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
      and to his praises we shall always sing.
      Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
      Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
      tiddly beer beer beer.

      The Lord bless Charlie Mops!

        ...or this one fer all yez Ozzes...

        THE PUB WITH NO BEER
        Gordon Parsons

        It's lonesome away from your kindred and all
        By the campfire at night where the wild dingos call
        But there's nothin' so lonesome, so dull or so drear
        Than to stand in the bar of a pub with no beer

        Now the publican's anxious for the quota to come
        There's a faraway look on the face of the bum
        The maid's gone all cranky and the cook's acting queer
        What a terrible place is a pub with no beer

        The stockman rides up with his dry, dusty throat
        He breasts up to the bar, pulls a wad from his coat
        But the smile on his face quickly turns to a sneer
        When the barman says suddenly: "The pub's got no beer!"

        There's a dog on the verandah, for his master he waits
        But the boss is inside drinking wine with his mates
        He hurries for cover and he cringes in fear
        It's no place for a dog round a pub with no beer

        Then in comes the swagman, all covered with flies
        He throws down his roll, wipes the sweat from his eyes
        But when he is told he says, "What's this I hear?
        I've trudged fifty flamin' miles to a pub with no beer!"

        Old Billy, the blacksmith, the first time in his life
        Has gone home cold sober to his darling wife
        He walks in the kitchen; she says: "You're early, me dear"
        Then he breaks down and he tells her that the pub's got no beer

        It's lonesome away from your kindred and all
        By the campfire at night where the wild dingos call
        But there's nothin' so lonesome, so dull or so drear
        Than to stand in the bar of a pub with no beer

          Another true story of the subject, when Winston Churchill visited the US, he meet a Mormon who told him, that he did not drink because it combinded the kick of an anthelope with the bite of a viper. To which Winston replied 'I been l looking for a drink like that, all my life'.

          On other evening a female Labour MP told Winston Churchill he was drunk, to which Winston replied 'Yes but you are ugly, and in the moring I will be sober'.

            A prayer for beer:

            Our Lager,
            Which art in kegs,
            Home brew be thy drink.
            Thy will be drunk,
            At home as it is in pubs.
            Give us this day our foamy head,
            And forgive us our spillage,
            As we forgive those who spill with us.
            And lead us not into oblivion,
            But deliver us from hangovers.
            For thine is the beer, the bitter and the lager.
            Barmen.
            Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the cheesemakers

              "There are many reasons to be drinking beer
              and one of them just entered my head.
              If a man can't drink when he's living,
              how the hell can he drink when he's dead."..

                          Because I Love My Country I think It's a praise considering its consequence

                          "On the eighth God Created Beer, to Prevent the Canadian's From Taking over the World"
                          God didnít create evil. Evil is the result of when man does not have God's love in his heart.It's the cold when there is no heat.The darkness that comes when there is no light

                            You can also get good B vitamins from beer too.
