The Lyrics

Men need their beer necessities
I said the beer necessities
To balance out the stresses from their wife
The daily beer necessities
Some may need more than less a' these
To calm and make the pressure ease in life

Wherever we wander, wherever we roam
We all need that amber ale topped with foam
As sure as all bees need a hive
This golden drink keeps us alive
Just like old Fred Astaire had to dance
Each circumstance when we get the chance
Beer can enhance us, it's true

The beer necessities of life are needs of us,
They're needs of us!

We love those beer necessities
That golden liquid made to please,
A can a' Bud, or Heineken, or "Pfieff"
God bless our beer necessities
At times we need a mess a' these
Around the house to float us through hard strife

Whether we're a grandpaw,
Or a college dude
Our best move is hand / jaw
Consuming fluid..
Must honor limit set by the law
And not get too stewed
Learn to just say, "Naw"
So cops won't need to use their claw
And drag us up before judge McGraw
No, we must not come unglued..

Still beer necessities of life are needs of us
They're needs of us.!

In our leisure we need a cold one
To unwind in our backyard
A can of beer will scratch our inner itches
Yes, Mam, these are the beer facts, uh huh..
Beer is our trump card

So, why waste our time lookin' around
Nothing better in life can be found
I guess it's true, we just can't live without it
We chug along not thinkin' about it
Our instinct pulls us thru

For beer necessities of life, God bless our brew
