We are the exploration club
We roam around from pub to pub
To die of thirst we have no fear
So long as we have lots of beer
So raise your foaming tankards high
And drink them down 'till they are dry
We are the exploration club
We roam around from pub to pub

If you hear a tally Ho in the middle of the night
Don't be afright dear belfryite
For it's only a drunken mountaineer
A bar room mountaineer
 
We are very seldom sober
We are always half seas-over
But when we've had enough for four
You'll never find us on the floor
We're up to the bar and shout for more
We're the bar room Mountaineers

 
(Tune: The Red Flag Author: Traditional)
