I Like Beer

Tom T. Hall

In some of my songs
I have casually mentioned
The fact that I like to drink beer
This little song is more to the point
Roll out the barrel
And lend me your ears
Chorus:
I like beer.
It makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer.
It helps me unwind
And sometimes it makes me feel mellow.
(Makes him feel mellow)
Whiskey's too rough,
Champagne costs too much,
Vodka puts my mouth in gear
This little refrain
Should help me explain
As a matter of fact I like beer
(He likes beer).

2. My wife often frowns
When we're out on the town
And I'm wearing a suit and a tie
She's sipping vermouth
And she thinks I'm uncouth
When I yell as the waiter goes by
Chorus:

3. Last night I dreamed
That I passed from the scene
And I went to a place so sublime
Aw, the water was clear
And tasted like beer
Then they turned it all into wine (awww)
Chorus:
I like beer.
It makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer.
It helps me unwind
And sometimes it makes me feel mellow
(Makes him feel mellow)
Whiskey's too rough,
Champagne costs too much,
And vodka puts my mouth in gear
Aw, this little refrain
Should help me explain
As a matter of fact I love beer
(Yes, he likes beer).


I include this song in the archive because it is a GREAT drinking song. We have sung it many times at pubs or after choir practice.
