lyrics

OLD BROWN ALE
by Patrick Marran

Well, the sea bed’s host to many a treasure
Fine gold and riches all beyond measure
But the thing I seek to which all these pale
Is my captain’s list to make old brown ale

For it’s one pint sea, laddies
One pint pale
One quart ‘a whiskey
That's the old brown ale

As our ship, the Valiant, took her privateer crew
From port to port only one thing’s true
You can spend your money or free hear this tale
There's none as sating as the old brown ale

For it’s one pint sea, laddies
One pint pale
One quart ‘a whiskey
That's the old brown ale

Now our captain, he’s known for his wicked grin
As the sop does drip from his ruddy red chin
But, it's not blood which will brim his grail
Just a homemade batch of that old brown ale

For it’s one pint sea, laddies
One pint pale
One quart ‘a whiskey
That's the old brown ale

But the ship was tossed one terrible day
The recipe lost as we drift into the bay
And now all that's left are some broken sails
And a mere ten gallons of that old brown ale

For it’s one pint sea, laddies
One pint pale
One quart ‘a whiskey
That's the old brown ale

Now we’ll dock for a half-week and rest our legs
If ya come on board, you can drain these dregs
And if we scrape bottom doesn't mean we’re through
Just in time comes the captain with a brand new brew

For it’s one pint sea, laddies
One pint pale
One quart ‘a whiskey
That's the old brown ale
