No wonder Rip would go away
And in the mountains roam.
For without Moerlein's Lager Beer
There is no joy at home
Mary had a little lamb
its fleece was white as snow.
And every where that Mary went
Why, Moerlein's Beer Would flow
This is a happy little crowd
As they drink, and laugh, and eat.
'Tis Moerlein's beer they praise aloud
for they know it can't be beat.
Old King Cole was a merry old soul,
and a merry old soul was he
He called for his beer, which brought him good cheer
for Moerlein's beer called he.
The washerwoman washes, she washes away
And she has been washing the live-long day
But she is not tired - the housewife knows
It's a pretty hard job a washing clothes
She always has a beer of Moerlein's brew
to give her strength and help her through.
The farmer's work for the day is done.
He's worked from rise till the set of sun.
All day he plowed with all his might.
But Moerlein's beer makes his work light.
Tell me, Tell me, old woman, dear.
What would we doi without Moerlein's Beer?
'Tis been a help all through our life,
It has made us happy, man and wife
On and on we go, over hill and dale,
Bless me, 'tis pleasant riding on the rail.
Moerlein's Lager Beer, always kept on ice,
Oh, it's quite refreshing, and it's awful nice.
Who steals my purse, steals trash.
But he who robs me of my bottle of Moerlein's
Robs me of that which not only enriches him.
But makes me poor indeed.
Now to every story some moral you'll find
And the moral to these is the very best kind
"If long you would live and ill health never fear
Drink plenty of Moerlein's Pure Lager Beer."
