GUEST,Don Wise Lyr Req: Brown Ale and Arrers (from Pete&Chris Coe (6) Lyr Add: BROWN ALE AND ARRERS (Clive Harvey) 24 Nov 11

Brown Ale and Arrers was written by Clive Harvey and was sung originally by ROARING JELLY.....No idea whether they ever recorded it.....That Pete & Chris sang it is news to me, but then again,I've been out of the country for a while now........From the dim recesses of my memory:

The first time I played arrers I never even scored
Hardly surprising, I came nowhere near hitting the board
The first dart stuck in the ceiling
The second stuck in the floor
The third took a cheese cob from out of the gob
Of the bloke next door
CH: With my brown ale and 'arrers, that's my delight
    Brown ale and arrers, all on a saturday night
    Brown ale and arrers, I wish I was there right now
    Brown ale and arrers down at the Old Red Cow

After my first game of arrers my fame it had spread afar
So the next time I played arrers, they cleared the whole public bar
The first dart shattered a light bulb
The second stuck in the wall
The third demolished the gothic west-wing
Of the Womens Institute hall

The landlord he'd had enough then and he tried to have me banned
But the people wouldn't here of it, I was there by public demand(!)
So the next time I played arrers
The whole world wanted to see
There was half a dozen reporters
And a man from the BBC

The last time I played arrers, they booked it for Match of the Day
But the first dart shattered a camera and the cameraman ran away
The last two darts went into orbit
And I'm lucky not to be dead
'Cos one of them travelled around the world
And stuck in the back of my head
