Garnet's Home Made Beer
This hilarious parody of Barrett's Privateers is sung to the same tune

Oh the year was 1978 ( How I wish I'd never tried it now )
When a score of men were turned quite green
By the scummiest ale you've ever seen

God damn them all!
I was told this beer was worth its weight in gold
We'd feel no pain; shed no tears
But it's a foolish man who shows no fear
at a glass of Garnet's home made beer

O Garnet Rogers cried the town
For twenty brave men, all masochists
who would taste for him his home made brew

God damn them all!
I was told this beer was worth its weight in gold
We'd feel no pain; shed no tears
But it's a foolish man who shows no fear
at a glass of Garnet's home made beer

This motley crew were a sickening sight
There was "caveman Dave" with his eyes in bags
He'd a hard-boiled liver and the staggers and jags

God damn them all!
I was told this beer was worth its weight in gold
We'd feel no pain; shed no tears
But it's a foolish man who shows no fear
at a glass of Garnet's home made beer

We hadn't been there but an hour or two
When a voice said "Gimme some home-made brew!"
And "Steeleye Stan" hove into view

God damn them all!
I was told this beer was worth its weight in gold
We'd feel no pain; shed no tears
But it's a foolish man who shows no fear
at a glass of Garnet's home made beer

Now "Steeleye Stan" was a fighting man
He was eight foot tall & four foot wide
Said "Pass that jug or I'll tan yer hide!"

God damn them all!
I was told this beer was worth its weight in gold
We'd feel no pain; shed no tears
But it's a foolish man who shows no fear
at a glass of Garnet's home made beer

Stan took one sip and pitched on his side
Garnet was smashed with a gut-full of dregs
And his breath set fire to both me legs

God damn them all!
I was told this beer was worth its weight in gold
We'd feel no pain; shed no tears
But it's a foolish man who shows no fear
at a glass of Garnet's home made beer

So here I lie with me 23rd beer
It's been 10 years since I felt this way
On the night before me wedding day

God damn them all!
I was told this beer was worth its weight in gold
We'd feel no pain; shed no tears
But it's a foolish man who shows no fear
at a glass of Garnet's home made beer
