A Tankard of Ale
But Byron, who declared that wines
With him did disagree, Could write the most astounding lines
On stinking fish and Tea.
Chorus
On stinking fish and Tea, my boys, (At one and nine the pound),
So, Landlord, get the Kippers cooked, And rush the teapot round
And round, And rush the teapot round !
Marlowe and Shakespeare won renown
As Poets, it is true ; And at the " Mermaid " would sit down
To beef and barley brew ; But Shaw eats cake and shies at ales,
And his plays are just as good. And Garvice writes his serial tales
On purely cereal food.
Chorus
He lives on cereal food, my friends,
And so does Ezra Pound. So, Landlord, open the Plasmon tin, And pass the Nutto round
And round, And pass the Nutto round !
