The Lyrics

It's October 2005, let's have an Ode-to-beer-fest here on AmIright!
Pubs - they got a malty reputation
They're serving liquor/beer elation
That's good for me and you
So pour and - hear me through
I say there ain't no liquid better
And now that we're together
Tell you what beer can do

When drinkin' your third
Wanna be heard
So you do the karaoke

When drinkin' your fifth
Start to adrift
And startin' to grin

Raise your glass
When you want your mind to blow
Raise your glass
When you wanna let your feelings show
Raise your glass
Whether Coors or Corona
Raise your glass
Whether Guiness or Sapporo
Pour - Raise your glass

When - you've been out in the alley
Where you'd go out for a rally
From spill all over you
Then you – come back to look for the bartender
He'll fill the glass if you're to tender
It's up to you

You're sinkin' your eighth
Now you'll be late
Gonna set the wife afire

You're sinkin' one more
Spotting a whore
And headin' for sin

You're gonna raise the glass
When you want your mind to go
Raise the glass
When you wanna let a hooker blow
Raise the glass
Whether Miller or 'Weiser
Raise the glass
Whether Fosters or Heineken
Pour - Raise the glass
Pour - Raise the glass

And then, at home:

Raise your cans
Raise your cans
Raise your cans
When you think the sandman's slow
Raise your cans
When you want your Ma-in-law to go
Raise your cans
Whether Carlsberg or Hofbrau
Raise your cans
Whether Molson or Lowenbrau
Pour - Raise your cans

Raise your cans - Draught
Raise your cans - And Stout
Raise your cans - Malt, Lager
Raise your cans - And Pilsner
Raise your cans – Hey! Wait! Porter...

I was wondering why this didn't pace right then I realised I was trying to sing it to "Lay Your Hands On Me", and all I'm drinkin' is Pepsi!

Carol: Have one on me!

Johnny: I'll never forget the first time I tasted Jägermeister, and neither will my throat!

Red Ant: There's probably a beer hymn somewhere in that BJ song too, "Lay your hands on beer", "Get a grip on beer" and "Put your mouth to beer" comes to mind immediatelly. We'll see, we'll see...
