Return to Beer (thing)

Traditional lyrics

Preformed by The [Minstrels of Mayhem] on the album [The Minstrels of Mayhem (live)]

This song is a favorite that is preformed at Renfairs. During the performance, three [stout], [hardy], and [manly men] are selected from the audience (I've been selected twice - must be the [beard]) to be part of the "Drunken Men's Choir" (I haven't been drunk when in the Drunken Men's Choir). The men are then asked to swing their right arm and maybe some [bouncing] (real men aren't afraid to bounce). This choir is responsible for singing the [chorus]. Make certain not to have a few too many beers in the chorus. Furthermore, make certain to remove one's hat when taking the five seconds of silence for the memory of Charlie Mops.


He must have been an [admiral] a [sultan] or a [king],
and to his [excessive praise|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 beer beer beer.

A long time ago, way back in history,
when all there was to drink was nothin but [cup of tea|cups of tea].
Along came a man by the name of [Charlie Mops],
and he [invent]ed 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!
[God Bless|Lord bless] Charlie Mops, the man who invented beer
beer beer 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 [lad]s a [lass]es at eleven O'clock ye stop
for five short seconds, remember Charlie Mops (softly 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 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 beer beer beer.
