-song lyrics
I Likes a Drop of Good Beer.

I'm Roger Rough, a ploughman,
A ploughman's son am I,
And like my thirsty father,
My throttles always dry;
Let the world go wrong, to me 'tis right,
Why need I interfere?
For I "works an' I sings from morn till night,
And then I drinks my beer;
For I likes a drop of good beer, I dose,
I am fond of a drop of good beer, I is.
So let gentlemen fine sit down to their wine.
But I likes a drop of good beer, I dose.
For I likes a drop of good beer, I dose.
I am fond of a drop of good beer, I is,
So let gentlemen fine sit down to their wine,
But I likes a drop of good beer, I dose.

There's Sarah, that's my wife, sir.
She likes beer as well as me,
She's the happiest woman in life, sir.
Ah, as happy as woman can be:
She does her, work, takes care of the bairns.
No gossiping neighbors near,
But as every Saturday night returns.
Like me, Sail drinks her beer.
For she likes a drop of good beer, she dose.
She is fond of a drop of good beer, she is.
So let gentlemen fine sit down to their wine,
But our Sall likes her beer, she dose.
For she likes a drop of good beer, she dose,
She is fond of a drop of good beer, she is.
So let gentlemen fine sit down to their wine,
But our Sail likes her beer, she dose.

So. lads, need no persuasion,
But fill your glasses round.
We'll never fear invasion
While the barley grows in the ground;
Let discord cease and joy increase
With every coming year,
Possessed of these and blessed with peace,
Why, we'll sing and we'll drink our beer.
For we likes a drop of good beer, we dose.
We're fond of a drop of good beer, we is,
So let gentlemen fine sit down to their wine.
But we likes a drop of good beer, we dose
For we likes a drop of good beer, we dose.
We're fond of a drop of good beer, we is,
So let gentlemen fine sit down to their wine,
But we likes a drop of good beer, we dose.
