This was requested in another thread.

Lyrics copied from Lyrics Playground:

THE BLOKE WHO INVENTED BEER
Rolf Harris

(Pub noises - laughter and talking)

SPOKEN: Okay you lot, all right, all right, you fellows, now you're all drinking up and havin' a good time, how about a round of applause for the gent who made all this possible ... the bloke who invented beer. Are you gonna join me in a musical tribute to this noble benefactor? (Too right!)

How about a cheer for the bloke who invented beer
He gave this tired old world a spark
They should have his statue in ev'ry park
Life was so drear till this genius thought up beer
So, charge your glasses, drink a cheer
To the bloke who invented beer

SPOKEN: Yes, us fellows know that the invention of beer was the greatest thing that ever happened to mankind, ahead of electricity and airplanes and all that other stuff. But did the bloke who invented beer get the credit and recognition he deserves...NO! No, he don't. But we don't forget him. Just look at our pub motto, Caesar was great and so was Nero, but the bloke who invented beer's a hero! So c'mon, loosen up your tonsils and let's give it another burst. Are you ready? Well, let's go then...

Oh, how about a cheer for the bloke who invented beer
We'd all be shakin' and quakin' flops
If we couldn't gargle our throats with hops
He was the first to defeat the old demon thirst
So, charge your glasses, drink a cheer
To the bloke who invented beer

How about a cheer for the bloke who invented beer
Though not one hist'ry book gives his name
We say he will stay in the hall of fame
Man's joys were few, till our hero brought out his brew
So, charge your glasses, drink a cheer
To the bloke who invented beer

Yeah, life was so drear till this genius thought up beer
So, charge your glasses, drink a cheer
To the bloke who invented beer

(Pub noises - laughter and talking)

Yeah, life was so drear till this genius thought up beer
So, charge your glasses, drink a cheer
To the bloke who invented beer...FADE

The man who invented beer

(Real and original version)



A long time ago, way back in history,
when all there was to drink was nothin but cups of tea.
Along came a man by the name of Charlie Mops,
and he invented a wonderful drink and he made it out of hops.

He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

The Curtis bar, the James' Pub, the Hole in the Wall as well
one thing you can be sure of, its Charlie's beer they sell
so all ye lads a lasses at eleven O'clock ye stop
for five short seconds, remember Charlie Mops 1 2 3 4 5

He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick,
the kind of lubrication to make your engine tick.
40 pints of wallop a day will keep away the quacks.
Its only eight pence hapenny and one and six in tax, 1 2 3 4 5

He must have been an admiral a sultan or a king,
and to his praises we shall always sing.
Look what he has done for us he's filled us up with cheer!
Lord bless Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer beer beer
tiddly beer beer beer.

The Lord bless Charlie Mops!

Oops! I forgot to mention why I posted this song. It was requested in another thread: Lyr Req: Beer, Beer, Beer / Charlie Mopps, to be exact.

Giok: are you implying these 2 songs are related, other than being about the same subject?

I decided to post this song in its own thread because I believed they weren't related, but then, I don't know the tunes.

Once you've had a few, everything's related.

Cheers, Rowan

whose version is different from Giok's above but similar (and descended?) from the version Bob Bolton describes in Jim's thread-link as having been published in the Oz collections.

I am saying that Mr Harris' version is more than a little derivative Jim.
Rolf,God bless him, isn't actually given to originality is he?

Giok
