1 All the brewers tell us lager-beer's a food;
That for old and young 'tis very, very good.
Ha, ha, ha, ha ha, ha, ha, ha!
Pardon, if our laugh seems rude.

2 If 'tis really food, as by the brewers said,
Why do many "soaKers" have to beg for bread?
Ha, ha, ha, ha ha, ha, ha, ha!
Why should they be begging bread?

3 Hear the whiskey cohorts shout their battle-cry:
"Regulate the trade with license, low or high."
But we answer: "No, no, no, no!
We will vote it, vote it dry."

4 Ye who soak your skin with whiskey, beer and gin,
Shake now in your shoes, for we are bound to win.
Ha, ha, ha, ha ha, ha, ha, ha!
Now let ev'rybody grin!
