HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY

Muchas veces, hay gente que te cae bien porque sí, aunque no hayas estado en su tierra, o hayas probado su cocina, o no hables su idioma, y a mí eso me pasa con los irlandeses. Nunca he estado en Irlanda, y no he probado sus platos, aunque su segundo idioma (el inglés) sí que lo hablo, y he probado su cerveza y su whisky. Y por tradición, desde hace años, cuando un amigo me llevó a un pub a celebrar este dia (aprovechando que la cerveza estaba más barata); y porque me encanta celebrar fiestas, no importa del lugar que vengan, todos los años me compro una botella de Murphy roja y brindo por esa tierra.

¡Y ahora, todos a cantar!

A long time ago, way back in history,
when all there was to drink was nothin but cups of tea.
Along came a man by the name of Charlie Mops,
and he invented a wonderful drink and he made it out of hops.

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.

The Curtis bar, the James' Pub, the Hole in the Wall as well
one thing you can be sure of, its Charlie's beer they sell
so all ye lads a lasses at eleven O'clock ye stop
for five short seconds, remember Charlie Mops 1 2 3 4 5

A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick,
the kind of lubrication to make your engine tick.
40 pints of wallop a day will keep away the quacks.
Its only eight pence hapenny and one and six in tax, 1 2 3 4 5

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.

The Lord bless Charlie Mops!

Beer, beer, beer, Irish Traditional Song.
