The Lyrics

Seeing Red Ant's parody of this OS a couple of days ago brought to mind the following, written several years (OK, several decades) ago. Patently primitive parody, but fits two popular criteria here: Drinking songs, and "Busch"-bashes.
Burly, brawny brew that tastes so good
I would have one right now if I could
Oh, I believe
In Michelob

A gigantic thirst came over me
I thirst relieve
With Michelob

Don't... drink... foreign beer,
Cup o' cheer
That's brewed right here
Sir... I.... say, sincere
Choice is clear:
"Mick" has no peer!...

Such supremely scented soapy suds
Don't want Blue Ribbons, Schlitz, or Buds;
I would so grieve:
Not Michelob?

While... re... lax-ing, slouch;
Sit on couch
In my bathrobe
Fra... grant... foam-y head
Pale or red
It's Michelob!

I take a slug, and chug - a - lug
And then up-chug upon my rug
Oh, I so heave
From Michelob...

Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm - mmm - mmm....

I had submitted this to Anheuser-Busch, expecting they'd pay big bucks to use it in a commercial, but the check must have gotten lost in the mail. Or, maybe I shoulda changed the ending... "Michelob" and "Bud" ® Anheuser-Busch; "Blue Ribbon" and "Schlitz" R. I. P.; all else © 2006 Tommy Turtle.

A worthy effort! Made me feel almost like I was sharing a Mic with you. The last verse runs so common, which is a shame after such genius. If you were thinking of running something about drunk drivers killing families and doing 10 years in jail for it for your close, that would make even me think seriously about going out and getting a pack of Mics. And I don't even drink.

555, not a beer drinker myself and I rarely drink other froms of alcohol, a good parody overall.

Pomfret, Stephen, alvin, thanks.Pomfret, not sure if your critique is understood clearly: (a) "common" as in, many others have done the same, in which case, sorry, or (b) as in "vulgar, low-brow", which was sorta deliberate, result of eloquent guy drinking too much, a common theme here, e.g. AFW "I Used to Drink Alone..." or alvin "Yucky Ol' Bum".
Thanks for taking the time to read and give feedback. which has helped this Turtle evolve considerably in short time here.

Always enjoy a good beer, and a good beer parody. Your technique has evolved since you wrote this, but the talent is evident. Cheers!

John Barry, AFW, Rex, MasonR, thanks, and cheers to ya all...

The Pomfret: Critique accepted completely (version b, I think). A revision has already been submitted, to post (I hope) tomorrow, Friday 24 March.

Thanks to The Pomfret and all other AmIWriters for keeping Turtle on toes... uh, flippers... uhh, whatever.... :)

A 15 pack, and I won't mention the ABBA rhyme pattern in the 1st, 4th and 6th verses vs TOS's AAAA pattern since when (if) Peter Andersson sees this he will (and probably take one of those beers before he give you the rest). ;-) Heh heh. Actually I might work on a parody of this song tonight that is completely misrymed just to have fun with it.

Michelob, 'cause some parodies are better than others. 555 beers

Red Ant, thanks for the vote and for not mentioning that....
Larry, good one, thanks.

BTW, Red Ant, how did ya know TT was workin' on an ABBA parody? You got ESPN or sumpin'?
Peter Andersson a.k.a K1chyd - March 25, 2006 - Report this comment
A) The reference to me is with almost certainty a reference to an old forum thread from last year, before your arrival. (Don't hesitate to revive it, should you feel like doing so):,7518.0.html

The reference to ABBA is not a reference to the group but the rhyming pattern. AAAA means all four lines rhyme with each other. ABBA means that the second and third breaks the pattern (but rhymes with each other).

Peter K1, loved your "Star Trek" mission statement on your Web site.
Perhaps facetiousness does not translate well across the language barrier (although you're incredibly articulate for having English as a second language); TT knew that Red Ant was critiquing rhyme (by "TOS AAAA"), but was pretending not to have understood. By sheer coincidence, the finishing touches are in fact being put on Turtle's first "Abba" parody, hoped to be posted here Monday 27 March.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.

TT, I *could* say I wouldn't give a XXXX for this parody. In fact I will. But you need to drink in Queensland (hint hint) to understand that statement fully :)
Tommy Turtle - August 28, 2012 - Report this comment
Peregrin: I drink XX myself (they don't sell it there, per Stu) .... Note The Pomfret's comments above, and that a revision was quickly posted in compliance:
and, the following posting day, a response to JAB's jab, "Bad beer..." by posting about a good beer.

Thanks for the read and comment, and the beers are on me, non-Mate! (priv. joke ;)
