Flapjack Charlie Is My Name

    "Do you think I'd forgotten we used to call you Flapjack Charlie."
    What, because of his liking for Flapjacks? That sounds rather like Champagne Charlie to my mind, and his liking for......................well for Champagne.

''Champagne Charlie Is My Name'

Some people go for funny drinks and down 'em by the pail
Like coffee, cocoa, tea and milk and even Adam's ale
For my part they can keep the lot I never would complain
I wouldn't touch the bloomin' stuff, I only drink champagne. For,
Chorus: Champagne Charlie is my name
Champagne Charlie is my name
There's no drink as good as fizz, fizz, fizz
I'll drink every drop there is, is, is
All round town it is the same
By Pop! Pop! Pop! I rose to fame
I'm the idol of the barmaids
Champagne Charlie is my name.
I earned my famous title thro' a hobby which I've got
Of never letting others pay however long the shot
Whoever drinks at my expense has no need to complain
For everyone I treat alike I make 'em drink champagne. For,
Chorus: Champagne Charlie is my name
Champagne Charlie is my name
There's no drink as good as fizz, fizz, fizz
I'll drink every drop there is, is, is
All round town it is the same
By Pop! Pop! Pop! I rose to fame
I'm the idol of the barmaids
Champagne Charlie is my name. Perhaps you think what I say now is just a bit of chaff
And only put into this song to raise a little laugh
To prove that I'm not jesting and the sort of man I am
I'm going to stand champagne all round and stand it like a lamb. For,
 Chorus: Champagne Charlie is my name
Champagne Charlie is my name
There's no drink as good as fizz, fizz, fizz
I'll drink every drop there is, is, is
All round town it is the same
By Pop! Pop! Pop! I rose to fame
I'm the idol of the barmaids
Champagne Charlie is my name.

Be seeing you
