lyrics

Friends, Romans, Countrymen,
Lend me your ears!
I’m here to tell you a story about man and a beer.
Pliny The Elder was a Roman naturalist, scholar and historian
And before perishing while helping save the people
After the eruption of Mount Vesuvius
He created the botanical name for hops -- Lupus Salictarius
That’s Latin for “Wolf Among Scrubs.”
And so for all of his contributions to mankind
We raise a glass in his honor,
And praise the man that we call...

Pliny, Pliny the Elder
Drink it up and have no fear
Pliny, Pliny the Elder
It’s the Russian River beer

Vinnie and Nat
Gonna brew up a vat
My cup is running low
So pour me some stat
I’m singing

Pliny, Pliny the Elder
Drink it up and have no fear
Pliny, Pliny the Elder
It’s the Russian River beer

The barley’s from Bavaria
But the hops are from heaven
We’re drinking it here
In the 707
Respect your Elder!
