I Likes a Drop of Good Peer, I does
Brandy and gin blows out the skin,
And makes one feel very queer: But whenever I puts them into my stomach
I always wishes 'twas beer :
For I likes a little good beer ; But whenever I puts.them into my stomach
I always wishes 'twas beer.
From drinking rum the maggots come,
And bowel pains appear ; But I always find both cholic and wind
Are driven away by beer :
For I likes a little good beer ; But I always find that cholic and wind
Are driven away by beer,
Moll, if I choose, reads out the news
With voice both firm and clear, While I eats my tripe, and smokes my pipe,
And drinks my gallon of beer :
For I likes a little good beer; While I eats my tripe, and smokes my pipe,
And drinks my gallon of beer.
At the public-house they used to chouse,
Which caused me many a tear ; But the new beer shops sell malt and hops,
And that's the right stuff to make beer :
For I likes a little good beer ; But the new beer shops sell malt and hops,
And that's the right stuff to make beer;
For I likes a little good beer
