The Lyrics

Last night I chugged down 27 Genesees
Bathroom runs quite frequent but I had no buzz

mmmm yuck
mmmm bleah

It might be the cheapest beer that you can buy
There is a very good reason
It can't be confused with any real beer
It is not even Budweiser

Last night I quaffed down 27 Genesees
I got sick, those Gennies really made me retch

mmmm yuck
mmmm bleah

If it is a beer that you are seeking for
Try a pilsner real, like Urquell
For a beer with taste, try Samuel Adams
Some flavors are sweet, not hoppy

mmmm yeah
mmmm yeah

Genesees are cheap, they're flat and have no taste
Genesees will not make you drunk
Genesees are served up in New York Upstate
Dude, just stay away from Gennies

If you want a beer with taste try Guinness draught
If you want a beer, try Magic Hat
You might want a pint of Indian Pale Ale
Chug-a-lug a Brooklyn Lager

27 Genesees
...and beware of Gennie liiiiiiiite!
Parody by Mason "oh, it's supposed to taste that way?" Resnick

the beer sounds awful but your parody sounded good

I've tried Genesee; it's nothing memorable. 27 beers w/o a buzz: that sounds like Olympia, whose slogan was (is?) "It's the water". Wrong! It should have read "It IS water!". Saranac was also big in NY when I was there ('94). Nothing bad to say about that beer, though it wasn't memorable either. Good parody, and I loved the line "It is not even Budweiser".

Thanks Alvin (the Beer was awful!) and Red Ant (oh I think it's memorable, but for all the wrong reasons)
