So, I was in the pub on Sunday night, and heard this great song ... but I never caught it's name, and an internet search turns up nothing (neither does a search of the mudcat database).

The chorus ended with the lines "It's a slur on this great nation, What those thieving little bastards charge for beer". The song was quite bawdy / explicit in it's lyrics. Other lines I can remember: "If there's pissing to be done I'll do my own" ; "Do they think I am a f*cking millionaire?" And there was something about a pint once having cost £1.10 and now being £3.80.

Does anyone know what this song is?

Thanks!

Obviously written by someone very young, if £1.10 a pint is the measure of cheapness.

It was 1/6 when I started pubbing, that'd be about 2gallons for £1.10

When I first went to university I could get 10 pints of Worthington E for £1.
