When beer was first invented it was very very dear
Fancy paying a caser for a glorious glass of beer?
People of that day were foolish so they say
They used to chew the hops and throw the glorious beer away
You can talk about inventors of today being up to date
Our animated pictures and our photographs so great
But the greatest inventor of them all, to me is plain and clear
It’s Charlie Mopps, the man who invented beer
He should have been an Emperor, a Sultan or a King
And all his praises ever should we sing
Oh, look what he has done for us
He’s filled us with good cheer
Lord bless Charlie Mopps –
The man who invented beer.
