The Lyrics

When I was just 13, I drank some very bad beer
I drank some very bad beer
Served up by old maids
In little corner bars
Their foreheads had scars
And their teeth were green
When I was only 13

When I turned 21, I drank the same lousy beer
I drank the same lousy beer
But strode into the joint
With my own ID
They were all shocked to see
That I wasn't 31
When I turned 21

When I was 35, I tried some imported beer
I tried some imported beer
With funny sounding names
In bottles and on tap
It tasted like crap
I was lucky to survive
When I was 35

When I was 44, I drank a lot more shitty beer
I drank a lot more shitty beer
And often wound up
Not knowing where I was
That was because
I'd passed out on the floor
When I was 44

When I was 59, the doctor told me "no more beer"
He told me "no more beer
You're gonna kill yourself
Or wind up on the street"
But my bartender was sweet
He said I looked just fine
When I was 59

But now the nights are short
I hit the john after each beer
And I think of my life as 1 big keg
I've suckled from the start
You can't keep us apart
I hope I've made it clear
I drank some very bad beer

Funny imagery. Especially the part about showing the bartender your ID to prove you were actually younger than you looked. "I think of my life as one big keg", that's good. I first tasted beer when I was a lot younger than 13 and could not figure then or now how one could drink the stuff. Or how you could tell good from bad. Besides the Frank Sinatra records, there are two ads linked to this parody, one for a beer cooler and the other for a rehab clinic. You've brewed up a very nice parody here.

Squire - First, fine parody. Now, everyone nominate their personal selections for "very bad beer". I propose Iron City and Falls City (and Falls City's 1976-80 creation Billy Beer, which was dedicated to President Carter's brother). ;D

Pretty darn good... love the original song, and I hate Hamm's, Old Milwaukee, Milwaukee's Best, Keystone, Busch, pretty much everything but Colt 45, Old English, Miller High Life, Sam Adams Boston Lager, Blue Moon, Shiner Bock and import beer. 5s.

Back in the 1970's there was a craze for collecting beer cans. I picked up a couple six packs of Olde Frothingslosh in Indiana (for 75 cents a pack) and sold the empty cans at a flea market in Kansas City for $2 each.

Own personal favorites on the "toughest to keep down " list are Meister Brau and Natural Light (Norm Crosby's drink of choice). Maybe that's what caused him to talk funny.
