  1. 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.

    Beer drinking was not uncommon for kids back then. I recently read a book called Tom Brown’s Schooldays, which chronicles life in a British public school during the early 1800’s. Beer drinking seems to have been the norm, at least at school!
