Hi - I think this is closer to the real lyrics :

Drink up thy zider George, pass us round the mug
Drink up thy zider George, the garden's ver'nigh dug
Thy cheeks bin gettin' redder
From Charter'ouse to Cheddar
An' there's still more zider in the jug

(Chorus)
Drink up thy zider, Drink up thy zider,
For tonight we'll merry be
We'll knock the milk churns over
And roll 'em in the clover
For the corn's 'alf-cut and so be we!

Drink up thy zider George, thee bissn't goin' far
Drink up thy zider George, thee's gettin' quite a star
There's dung o'er all thy tat'ers
An' 'alfway up thy gaiters
An' there's still more zider in the jar!

(Repeat chorus)

Drink up thy zider George, get up off thick mat
Drink up thy zider George, put on thy girt big 'at
We'm off to Barrow Gurney
For to see my brother Ernie
An' there's still more zider in the vat!

(Repeat chorus)

Drink up thy zider George, 'tis time we 'ad a rest
Drink up thy zider George, the finest ever pressed
There's nothing like good cider
To make your smile grow wider
An' there's still more zider in the West!

(Repeat chorus)
(Repeat chorus)
