The subject of my little song is one I hold most dear.
It supports our Constitutiou and it will for many a year;
John Bull would surely be defunct or else look rather queer.
If Bass & Co. should cease to brew their glorious Bitter Beer.

Allsop, Bass & Co., they each deseve a monument;
So give them while we're here.
Three cheers for Bass and Allsop,
And their glorious Bitter Beer.
I've tasted Hock and Claret, to Madeira and Moselle;
Not one of those boshy wines revives this languid swell;
Of all complaints from A to Zed, the fact is very clear,
There's no disease but what's been cured by Bass's Bitter Beer.
Allsop, Bass & Co., they each deserve, &c.

I've lived in Scotland many years, and drank its mountain dew,
I don't deny but what it's good and a stimulant it's true;
I'm far from being predjudiced as many think I fear,
But give to me a cooling draught of Bass's Bitter Beer.
Allsop, Bass & Co , they each deserve, &c.
