A Boozer Was Old Uncle Stall...


(Solo)
A boozer was old uncle Stall
Not sober he, know all;

Little Tommie he once asked:
Home, beer two cans I had;

Two en routes at Bill Richard,
Two cans from neighbors bar,

Tommie, add and tell me now
What is the number; cans’

(Chorus- thrice)
Tommie, add and tell me now
What is the number; cans’

(Solo)
‘Two at home and two at bar
An’ two, at Bill Richard’s

Total six an’ plus one you
That makes it seven, Sir! ’

(Chorus- thrice)
Total six and plus one you
That makes it seven, Sir! ’

PS: My daughter asked why chorus thrice... yes; thrice, two times...that makes it six...to six cans of beer...cheers, old Stall!

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
