'ARF A PINT OF ALE (Charles Tempest 1905) as recorded by Gus Elen 1906 I hate those chaps what talks about the things what they like to drink, Such as tea and coffee, cocoa and milk, the fings I never fink! I'm plain in me 'abits and I'm plain in me food, and what I says is this; That the man what drinks such rubbish with 'is meals, well, I always gives 'im a miss! Now for breakfast I never think of 'aving tea, I likes me 'arf a pint of ale, For me dinner I likes a little bit o' meat, and a 'arf a pint of ale. For me tea I likes a little bit o' fish, an' an 'arf a pint of ale, And for supper I likes a crust o' bread and cheese, and a pint and an 'arf of ale! Now this is 'ow I looks at it, and I think you'll agree with me, I've never seen a man get drunk in me life on cocoa, coffee or tea! Do ya think I'd pay one and eight a pound for tea, why, the thought makes me feel queer, When I think of what you'd get for another one and six, such a pretty little barrel o' beer! Now for breakfast I never think of 'aving tea, I likes me 'arf a pint of ale, For me dinner I likes a little bit o' meat, and a 'arf a pint of ale. For me tea I likes a little bit o' fish, and 'arf a pint of ale, And for supper I likes a crust o' bread and cheese, and a galling and an 'arf of ale! Now for breakfast I never fink of 'aving tea, I likes me 'arf a pint of ale, For me dinner I likes a little bit o' meat, and a 'arf a pint of ale. For me tea I likes a little bit o' fish, an' an 'arf a pint of ale, And for supper I likes a crust o' bread and cheese, and a barrel and an 'arf of ale!
