The Lyrics

Paced to
I dig my toes into the sand
The ocean roars like a thousand voices -
None as loud as your bitching
I try to shut it out
Pretend I found a genii
I rub the lamp and give an order, baby

I wish you were beer
I need me some cheer
Just face it my dear
I wish you were beer

I stick my head down in the sand
You're still complaining about the concierge
Who dropped your suitcase
You never let it go
I fantasize you are transfigured
And at that moment I am happy, happy

I wish you were beer
Yes I am sincere
And I would revere
You as a beer

The world is full of people who need to moan and wail
Turn 'em into Shiner Bock
And we’ll all be rockin' round the clock, so

I wish you were beer
I'll make it clear
Each day of the year
Each time you come near
Please just disappear
Turn into beer

Ahhh... Wouldn't it be nice if all of the annoying people in this world became an alcholic beverage? Just think... Our president could be a keg. Then he'd actually be useful, and perhaps even more intellegent.

And to think of all that time the alchemists wasted trying to turn things into gold... If Tyra Banks were turned into beer, would it be a Negra Modela? 555

(Artistry) "Would you choose water over wine?": neither, give me a beer! Thanks for chosing Shiner Bock instead of Rolling Rock! Good writing, Rex.

(Artistry) Damn, this song didn't give you much to work with...very, very random for a Rex U. parody. i get the feeling you had a hard time trying to get this one done. This round SUCKS! :)

(Artistry) When a girl screws you up so bad, you want her to become beer...that's just sad. Awesome as always, Rex!

(Artistry) Very good for what you have to work with. . .one thing I've noticed about all these is with the notable exception of Drive, all the songs are kinda dragging. . .anyhow, I think that the water over wine (being a line from Drive) was a clever inclusion.

I am aware that "I Wish You Were a Beer" is a real song.
Rex - July 04, 2011 - Report this comment
@Tommy: interesting....I googled "I Wish You Were a Beer" and discovered that The Cycle Sluts released the song in 2009. My parody is from 2007, so maybe I inspired them?
