Glorious Beer
Last updated: 22.04.22
Glorious Beer, music by Will Goodwin - lyrics by Steve Legget, is great Cockney belter which Dr. Rosteck and I recorded and included in our compilation We're Only Here For The Beer! - Light. It's a tremendous feeling when you get the audiences going and they sway in time with melody a-waving their pots, mugs and glasses.
The chorus of Glorious Beer may be found in 101 Pub Favourites for Buskers and a full version in Community Book of Fireside Songs. Youtube gives us an amazing full version on a recording by Dan W. Quinn in 1899.
