Charlie Mopps

from an anonymous correspondent

In the reign of Queen Victoria, in 1863
All we had to drink then was lemonade and tea
Along came this geyser, his name was Charlie Mopps
And he invented a wonderful drink, made from malt and hops

Ooohhhhh he ought to be an admiral, a leader or a king
And to his praises we should always sing
For look what he has done for us, he's filled us up with cheer
God bless Chalie Mopps, the man who invented beer
