Ye olde trip to Jerusalem

Underneath the castle walls
in the bright sunshine
Eight hundred years and some have passed
of serving ale and wine

Ye Olde trip to Jerusalem
is the place I mention
The oldest pub in England
stands here with good intention

So whilst visiting fair Nottingham
with a toast to passing years
I spent a pleasant lunchtime
with two of their fine beers
