Song Description

I like beer. Hate it when you show up at my house and drink all the beer! You know that person that throws 'em down like a free water fall but never shows up with anything to share? I hate that guy. I also am Irish and have never been to Ireland so I wish to change that soon! Hoping to visit Ireland and play some music over there, ... so I wrote this song to get my "Irish" on! The song is entended to be a "sing-a-long" in a bar for a live audience who is, yes drinking beer! or more accurately ... drinking beers {plural} ... Just a fun song to make you laugh and feel good. I like it! Hope you do too. This is my attempt at an Irish drinking song from the perspective of someone who's never been to Ireland.

Lyrics

IRISH BEER ©Linda Mckenzie 12.29.2017
Addagirl Music (ASCAP)

A FRIEND[A] FRIEND OF A FRIEND DRANK MY VERY LAST BEER
I SHOULDA FILLED IT UP WITH BRINE
THE DIRTY BLOODY BLOATE DRANK IT STRAIGHT DOWN HIS THROAT
AND NOW HE'S LOOKIN' FOR TO EYEBALL MINE

[YOU AIN'T NO FRIEND (YOU AIN'T NO FRIEND)
YOU AIN'T NO FRIEND OF MINE
(IF) YOU DRINK ALL THE BEER / (AND) YOU LEAVE NONE HERE
(THEN) YOU AIN'T NO FRIEND OF MINE

(THEY SAY) IRISH BEER / FROM WHAT I HEAR
IN THE LAND OF THE SCHOLARS & THE SAINTS
CAN MAKE THE BAKER'S WIFE WHO'S A TRITE BIT SHY
DO A JIG JUST LIKE THE DANCER SHE AIN'T!

(SO) NOW A FRIEND OF A FRIEND DRANK MY VERY LAST BEER
FOR THE VERY VERY VERY LAST TIME
CUZ IF A FRIEND OF A FRIEND'LL DRINK MY VERY LAST BEER
THEN HE AIN'T NO FRIEND OF MINE!
C H O R U S
NOW IRISH BEER WILL MAKE YOU CHEER (hey)
AND SHOUT OUT AN IRISH "SLAINTE"
AND DO AN IRISH JIG / AND TAKE AN IRISH SWIG
AND THEN TOAST TO YOUR SCHOLARS & YOUR SAINTS

SO HERE'S TO THE BEER THAT WE LOVE TO DRINK
AND THE FOOD THAT WE LOVE TO EAT
AND A TOAST FOR THE WIFE AND THE SWEETHEART TWICE AND WE PRAY THAT THEY NEVER DO MEET
C H O R U S

C H O R U S

TAG: YOU DRINK ALL THE BEER YOU LEAVE NONE HERE YOU AINT NO FRIEND OF MINE
