CHAMPAGNE CHARLIE

I've seen a deal of gaiety throughout my noisy life,
With all my grand accomplishments I ne'er could get a wife;
The thing I most excel in is the P. R. F. G. game-
A noise all night, in bed all day, and swimming in champagne.

Chorus.
For Champagne Charlie is my name,
Champagne Charlie is my name;
Good for any game at night, my boys,
Champagne Charlie is my name,
Champagne Charlie is my name;
Good For any game at night, my boys,
Who'll come and join me in a spree?

The way I gained my title, 's by a hobby that I've got
Of never letting others pay, however long the shot;
Whoever drinks at my expense are treated just the same,
From dukes, lords,to cabmen down,I make them drink champagne
For Champagne Charlie is my name, &c.

From coffee drunk from supper rooms, from Poplar to Pale,
All the girls on seeing me, exclaim, "O, what a champagne swell!"
The notion 'tis of every one, if 'twere not for my name,
And causing so much to be drunk, they'd never make champagne.
For Champagne Charlie is my name, &c.

Perhaps you fancy what I say is nothing else but chaff,
And only done, like other songs, to merely raise a laugh;
To prove that I am not in jest, each man a bottle of Cham.
I'll stand, fiz round! yes, that I will, and stand it like a lamb.
For Champagne Charlie is my name, &c.
