Thread creep warning:
The UK papers say that there is a big sales drive by Bulmers to sell cider to China so perhaps the autotranslator should be working overtime!

Try it after 4 or 5 pints of some good stuff like Biddenden or( I kid you not) Gibbon Strangler,if you can stand to sing, No Problem, the words will even make sense.

Hi Bill...

I'm with a group that does this song (or at least a song by that title)... hope this is what you're looking for.

Drink up the Cider
lyr:Trad, New lyr: Steve Morales

Drink up the cider jar, pass us 'round the jug
Drink up the cider jar, my lips are all tied up
Eat up all your smelt, then loosen up your belt
And there's still more cider in the jar

Chorus Drink up the cider, drink up the cider,
For tonight we'll merry be
We'll knock the millstones over
And roll them in the clover
The cider is jarred, and so are we

Drink up the cider jar, things are going far
Drink up the cider jar, we're getting quite a start
My cheeks are getting redder, my sight is getting better
And there's still more cider in the jar

Chorus
Drink up the cider jar, get it in your chest.
Drink up the cider jar, it's time I had a rest
There's nothing like more cider to make my smile grow wider
And there's still more cider in the jar

Hope this helps...

M

Almost right. There're a couple missing breaks around the chorus (of which there's only one chorus, repeated), but I hope that helps.

The chorus actually ends 'for the corn's half cut and so be we.... which makes slightly more sense, plus a nice play on worms....

LTS, who was brought up on cider and loathes this song because my mother played it every sodding day, thank you Adge Cutler!!!

Folk variations... we sing a fairly clean version. I've since found one or two amusingly filthy versions.

Also seen "So let's all have another round" for the last line of the chorus, and a lot of others, basically all stating either "I'm drunk", or "give me more booze"...

Ah, the life of the non-PC...

I think other versions have "knocked the milkchurns over" and even "knocked the milkmaids over" (which makes rolling them in the clover more interesting!),but it may be my tinnitus interefering with my comprehension!

Micca, someone who drinks Biddendens (Weald time warp)

I reacently met Thatchers, not the supermarket stuff, you get two flavours red or green, both have a sort of luninessence served up as Chernobyl or Sellerfield

£1.50 per pint... quality stuff

but it does answer why west country people speak with a slow drawl and lose some of their words

ie;

Where are you now

where you to

Where is the package comming from

Where's it to

and many more

Hey Gint do you know Gibbon Strangler? On the day on which my doctor told me I am diabetic, the almost only bright spot was his advice to stick to dry cider as it is almost residual sugar free and gets you pissed cheaper. Do you go to Hastings for the Mayday weekend?, if yes take a look at the picture page and you can see what I do there. the pubs in the Old Town ie the FILO has Proper cider.

A cider reminiscence---- When I was based at RNAS Yeovilton ( HMS Heron ) in 1964-66, a pint of local scrumpy could be had of the landlord of the Duke of Clarence, next to the Gaumont cinema in Yeovil, for tenpence ha'penny ( about 4 p ! ) . We would go , more often ,to the Dolphin in Ilchester, as it was within walking distance ( at least, on the outward journey ! ) There, it was a shilling ( 5p) a pint, and still virtually undrinkable unless you had " tops " on it---(-usually orange, but some had lemon ). You wouldn"t really want more than 4 or 5 pints , so you could have a good night out on ten shillings ( 50 p ! ) ---4 pints of scrumpy, ten cigarettes ( no. 6 or no. 10 )and some chips from the chip-shop on the way back "home". Before going on Easter or Summer leave, which was always by train,we would collect all the empty vinegar-bottles from the "galley", and take them to a farm behind the airfield, at Chilton Cantello,where scrumpy was five shillings ( 25 p !! ) a GALLON !! And , yes, it DID have lumps in it ! We would then be " bussed" to Templecombe, which was very strange indeed, as Yeovil had THREE stations ,where we would all ( several hundred ) board the train / trains , in which were already ensconced the entire female garrison of the WRAC Driver Training Centre at Houndstone Camp, Yeovil. By about Westbury /Reading, there were some VERY interesting cider-fuelled " situations " developing !! To paraphrase the late,great,Adge Cutler, "There"s nothing like good cider, to make thee legs grow wider, and there"s still more cider in the West !"

There was a farm along the Ashill straight that did 'praper' scrumpy.
I have writted these worms down and will sing 'Drink up thee cider' for the benefit of these ere folk in the parched deserts of Derbyshire

Memories of Bath '67-'70, when scrump was 9d a pint in the Beehive - and for that matter, in the Student Union bar! I'm afraid two was about my limit, and, when I found it down in Deb'n, I preferred Taunton Cider's Natural Dry, known locally as Natch. Seemed to be just as strong, but rather more mellow - and I don't mean sweet. Unfortunately, Taunton Cider Co. is no more, and the company that took it over marketed Natural Dry as Natch, but have changed the apples and many cider fans drink it no more. Thatcher's isn't bad, though.

There used to be a good folk-club in Taunton,in a pub . I can"t remember the name of the pub, but I DO recall going there to see a "bluegrass" -style group called " Country Strings ", in about 1965, and very good they were too ! ( Well, I thought so !)--Anyone else heard of them ?? And, to stay 'on thread' --We all drank CIDER, but didn"t sing THAT song !!

No decent pubs in Ilchester anymore! These days Yeovilton is full of angry egg whisks, and a couple of token Hawks.

I think the pub in Taunton which held the folk club is the Weastgate, at the top of Compass hill, and I think it is still going.

Wassail! Chris
