Just give me the hops or the slops

Stereophonics - Last of the Big Time Drinkers lyrics meaning

Meaning

'The hops' is a reference to the female flowers of the hop plant humulus lupulus - used to make beer, among other things. 'The slops' may refer to the mash that remains after alcohol distillation, or possibly just spilt beer.

Or, alternatively, something far more disgusting on the topic of what too much beer can do to your bowels. But it's perhaps best if we don't go into that one.
