The Lyrics

OK, I'm again plagiarizing Phil. I do like brisk marching tunes, and I'm more into cider than beer. Again too obvious a topic to be left unused.
Some like the ice-cold lager and some like sparkling wine
Then some like fancy cocktails and some say "Ale is mine"
But all the drinks of whole world, there's none that can compare -
It is dry, dry, dry, dry, dry, dry, dry
The Cider of Wiltshire

Unlike some stuff which is sold relying on fancy name
Or those drinks which have only TV commercial fame
It's tasty and it's brisk and deserves a certain cheer -
It is dry, dry, dry, dry, dry, dry, dry
The Cider of Wiltshire

If you like to watch the football, or if cricket is your game
Relax and have a cider with taste which is not lame
And if you're simply thirsty and Coke won't you endear -
It is dry, dry, dry, dry, dry, dry, dry
The Cider of Wiltshire

If you're afraid of carbohydrates, if Atkins's your diet
It's time for you rejoice now, it's dry as dry can get
There's none to speak of sugar, it's bitter just like beer -
It is dry, dry, dry, dry, dry, dry, dry
The Cider of Wiltshire

So here's a toast for England for the cider that they do
Whose taste is so refreshing and which sparkles CO2
If sun is hot on summer, make sure a can is near -
It is dry, dry, dry, dry, dry, dry, dry
The Cider of Wiltshire
