The Lyrics

Dedicated to "Invisible Boy," author of the current smash "Talk Like a Bostonian." Cheers!
(instrumental opening)

Now, look, at you all
here on Beacon Street, drinking
while at the bar Sammy keeps.
I look at those stools
only Frasier is thinking
while at the bar Sammy keeps.

I don't know how
that drink you're liking
it's not just like, it's love.
I don't know how
each beer Sam's striking
a "Screaming Viking," too!

Now, I've had six beers
and the room, yes, it's turning
while at the bar Sammy keeps.
From drinking's mistake
I am surely not learning
whlie at the bar Sammy keeps.

(instrumental break)

I don't know how
you can stand Clavin.
No one is savin' you.
I don't know how
Carla's depravin'.
Norm is outpacin' you.

Now, look, at you all
here on Beacon Street, drinking
while at the bar Sammy keeps.

Now, look at you all...

while at the bar Sammy kee... ee... eeeeeeeeps!

(instrumental fadeout)

Oh, Coach, Coach, Coach, Coach...
At the end of the original, some people think George Harrison sings, "Paul, Paul, Paul... " as if McCartney's dead and George misses him. So I put Coach in there.

Sorry I'm so late to comment. I've been at work.
I have to thank you for what I believe is my first ever amiright dedication.
This is a super, well written, great title-sub, great idea parody.
And sir, "Cheers" IS on Beacon Street. Perhaps you've been there?
Michael...if we could put this whole Red Sox/Yankees thing behind us I think we would find we have most things in common.
Thanks again !!!

Can't stand TOS, so you got Fives for the title send-up alone. And yes, IB's Bostonian was excellent! -- he must have had some really good inspiration there :) :) :)
