I think it's a Geordie song ... or maybe I've only ever heard it sung by a guy who usually sings Geordie songs. But alas, can't help with lyrics!

I have it on an Oldham Tinkers album. Even I have a problem working out some of the words - it is Lancashire after all.

Chorus is:

There's mehr to life than women and beer, there's mehr to life says he
It may be true, but up till noo, it hadn't occurred to me
There's mehr to life than women and beer, it's obvious ya naa
Well ah've thowt all night an day but ah haven't worked out what it is sae far.

I'll try to get the rest. It's a great song.

This could be important, especially for us essentially clueless lads.

Cheerily,

a brilliant evening, but said with a southern 'North-Eastern' twist.
England that is.

THERE'S MORE TO LIFE THAN WOMEN AND BEER

Written by Eric Boswell in the 1970s. Recorded in 1983 by MWM for the LP 'Geordie Roots and Branches' and re-mastered by Ken McKenzie for the Northumbrian Anthology.
Alan Price, keyboards; Steve Grant, guitar; Dave Rose, electric keyboards; Bill Smith, bass; Theo Thunder (if that IS his real name), drums.

THERE'S MORE TO LIFE THAN WOMEN AND BEER
(Eric Boswell)

CHORUS:
"There's more te life than women and beer; there's more te life," says he.
Ne doubt it's true but up te noo it hasn't occurred te me.
There's more te life than women and beer' it's obvious, ye knaa.
Aa'm searchin' neet and day but aa haven't found out what it is so far.

1. When aa was young, me father wouldn't let me stay out late at night.
He said, "Just trust yer mother and yer dad for we know what is right."
And he gave her a clout 'cos she opened her gob and he said, "One day ye'll see
If ye stick te the straight and narrow ye'll be as happy as yer mother's made me."
CHORUS

2. Me uncle Geordie said he had a bit advice to give to me.
With a beer in his hand, in the Rose and Crown, and Rosie on his knee.
He says, "Alcohol is the devil's own drink; just take my word; it's true.
Just look what it's done to me, my lad; aa wadn't want it te happen te you!"
CHORUS

3. Wor Bella's uncle's cousin's elder lad thowt drinkin' was a curse,
And no one ever saw him with a lass; he said, "I'm none the worse!"
Man! Ye never saw such a miserable chap; he went round the bend, they say,
And these were the very last words he said just afore they took him away:
CHORUS

4. Aa was in the pub; the minister was there; was only yesterday.
He says, "Divn't join them sinners at the bar, 'cos heaven is not that way."
He says, "Them that'll come to a place like this are deservin' aal they get!
Man, I pray for aal them wicked women there!" Mind, he's nivvor had ne luck yet!
CHORUS
