Lloyd George's Beer
Sung By Ernie Mayne




We shall win the war, we shall win the war,
As I've said before, we shall win the war,
The Kaiser's in a dreadful fury,
Now he knows were making it in every brewery.
Have you read of it? Seen what's said of it?
In "The Mirror" and "The Mail"
It's a substitute and a pubstitute,
And it's known as "Government Ale". Or otherwise.

Chorus

Lloyd George's beer, Lloyd George's beer,
At the brewery, there's nothing doing,
All the water-works are brewing,
Lloyd George's beer, it isn't dear
Oh they say it is a terrible war, Oh Lor'
And there never was a war like this before
But the worst thing that ever happened in this war
Is Lloyd George's beer.

Buy a lot of it, all they've got of it,
Dip your bread in it, shove your head in it
From January 'till October
And I bet a penny that you'll still be sober.
Get the froth off it, make your broth of it
With a pair of mutton chops.
Drown your dogs in it, drop some frogs in it
Then you'll see some wonderful hops (in that lovely stuff).

Chorus

Lloyd George's beer, Lloyd George's beer,
At the brewery, there's nothing doing,
All the water-works are brewing,
Lloyd George's beer, it isn't dear
Said Haig to Joffre when affairs looked black
"If you can't shift the beggars with you gas attack
Get your squirters out and we'll squirt the devils back
With Lloyd George's beer."
