The Lyrics

A true story about being tricked into thinking that a common ingredient in many mixed drinks was tasty, when in reality it tasted like deadly poison.

Original song, with a PG-rated video
I bought Angostura bitters at the liquor store
And they said “It tastes real good!”
And I'm drinkin’ it and it is not good
And it made me sick as heck

Angostura, it’s so vile
Lives up to its name
I might as well drunk Ipecac
And I just blew six bucks

Now I hate that Angostura
How it gave my stomach fits
And I want to dump it down the drain
But I can’t bring my-self to


Angostura, it’s so vile
Lives up to its name
And I might as well drunk Ipecac
‘Cause I puked out my guts


Well I'm standin’ here, right in front of the john
Flushin’ Angostura down
Decided I’d stick to drinkin’ Miller Light
And I’ll lay off the bitter crud


Angostura, never drink it
It really makes you sick
Get you squatted down before the john
Make you feel deathly sick

Angostura, never drink it
It really makes you sick
Get you squatted down before the john
Make you feel deathly sick

Happy Holidays!

On the other hand, WRITING about it leaves a most refreshing aftertaste. ;D Thanks, andria.

Thanks, OMR. Why one would want to put something that tastes remarkably like Syrup of Ipecac into Coca-Cola, gingerale and cocktails and onto fruit, let alone drink as a straight liquor, is beyond me. I recall eating too much Everclear-saturated watermelon that night, and Everclear makes people do strange things.

Good ode to getting talked into consuming something nasty. Now try absinthe.
Andria - December 18, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, 2Eagle... I'll definitely try absinthe next time I get a chance. And I challenge you to try Campari.

Angostura bitters *are* pretty horrible, even mixed with something that isn't. GG Allin - that's not a name you see everyday here, lol. I did a parody of one of his songs a while ago - I think drinking AB is easier than swallowing his music. I bet he would have liked them - there is a video of him drinking urine fresh from the tap... 5s

Thanks, Red Ant. I'm a big GG Allin fan, and I picked one of his tamer songs, tamer than the one you did, to parody.

I went to that Angostura site and discovered most of those recipes for cocktail drinks and enrees. Speaking of Angostura, I actually went to this Caribbean restaurant where I had this Jerk Chicken and Ribs that are seasoned with Angostura. That explained why it tasted funny. I heard this OS the first time and I loved it! I sure know I would not be caught dead drinking it straight! Great parody and 5's!!

Correction: I meant entrees.
