THE MAN THAT WATERS THE WORKERS BEER

Now I'm the man, the very fat man,
That waters the workers' beer,
Yes I'm the man, the very fat man,
That waters the workers' beer,
And what do I care if it makes them
  ill,
If it makes them terribly queer,
I've a car and a yacht and an
  aeroplane,
And I waters the workers' beer.

                      (cont.)

Now when I makes the workers' beer,
I puts in strychinine,
Some methylated spirits and a drop of
  paraffin,
But, since a brew so terribly strong
Might make them terribly queer,
I reaches my hand for the water tap,
And I waters the workers' beer.

Now a drop of good beer is good for a
  man
Who's thirsty and tired and hot,
And I sometimes has a drop for myself
From a very special lot;
But a fat and healthy working class
Is the thing that I most fear,
So I reaches my hand for the water tap
And I waters the workers' beer.

Now ladies fair beyond compare,
And be it maid or wife,
O sometimes lend a thought for one
Who leads a wandering life,
The water rates are shockingly high,
And meths is shockingly dear,
And there isn't the profit there used
  to be
In watering the workers' beer.
 

THE GOOD OLD PABTY LINE
  (Tune: Good Old Mountain Dew)

CHORUS;
Well, they call it that old Party Line,
And for them that adheres to it it's
  fine
It's not very static,
It's extremely acrobatic
Read the Worker and get the Party Line.

To be very blunt,
That old Popular Front
Was expedient back in '41,
And you didn't feel no pain
If you couldn't fight in Spain.
You could always fight the war from
  Willow Run.
 
CHORUS:

In language exotic,
All the boys were patriotic,
Slap the Jap and knock him to the
  deck.
You could Join the Marines
Or free the Philippines,
Or make the world safe for Chiang
  Kai Chek. 

CHORUS:
