The Lyrics

When I was 17
I drank a very good beer
It was a premium light, a simple brew of barley and hops
We'd hide from the cops, we had to stay unseen
When I was 17

When I was 21
I drank a very good beer
And another one, then another one, until they were gone
From dusk until dawn, we thought it was fun
When I was 21

When I was 35
I drank a very good beer
It was an imported brew for those select few of independent means
We'd eat fine cuisine, we felt so alive
When I was 35

But now I'm older still
And I no longer count the years
I've seen Vietnam, men on the moon, and presidents shot
But no matter what, through tears and through cheers
There has always been the beer

Very good, but Homer's already done it.

Hi Rex! Another wonderful parody you've concocted I must say. Although, I did like the version you posted in "Giving Feedback" on the message board a bit better. You should seriously consider posting that as well. BTW, now, I see a rather drunk Captain Kirk trying to make moves on an Orion Slave girl while mangling this song. Five beers to toast to you, five Orion Slave girls to call your own, and five bottles of Romulan Ale for your fine effort. ***Note: if people have never heard William Shatner sing "It Was A Very Good year," then consider yourself extremely lucking indeed.***
