Glorious Ale

cho: Ale, Ale, Glorious Ale
     Served up in pewter it tells its own tale,
     Some folks like radishes
     Some curleye kale
     But give I boiled parsnips
     And a great dish of taters
     And a lump of fatty bacon
     And a pint of good ale

When I was a young man my father did say,
Summer is coming and it's time to make hay.
Now when hay is carted don't you never fail.
To drink gaffer's health in a pint of good ale.

Now our MP's in parliament, our safety to keep
Now we hope now we put him there, he won't sit and sleep
But they'll all have my vote if they never fail
To keep down the price of a pint of good ale
