The Lyrics

Homebrewing is one of my strange interests, but remembering I am a chemical engineer by my education, it is perhaps not so strange.
I dont know what it is that makes me love to brew
I've done both beer and ale and also wine or two
'cause when it starts bubbling, that batch, you know
I know within two weeks there's something good to show
It's crazy but it's true -
I only wanna have a brew

It doesnt matter whether it is dark or light
as long as it is strong and also taste is right
Be ale or just lager, it's same, you see -
The fermentation process's biochemistry
and it won't let me blue -
I only wanna have a brew

As long as I remember
I've made drinks this way -
And when you keep your pots right clean
the taste will be okay -
(Now add some honey)

I want to be a brewster, and I want, of course
to brew a better beer than that old Budmilloors
I know I'm into something when my friends say:
"Susy, your stuff's better than Bud in every way'" -
No matter what I do -
I only want to have a brew

Oh, oh, it's stopped that bubbling,
so through is work of yeast;
Month in storage makes the taste -
and then we'll have a feast!

(Don't touch those bottles!)

I want to be a brewster, and I want, of course
to brew a better beer than that Miller, Coors
I know I'm into something when my friends say:
"Susy, your stuff's better than Bud in every way" -
No matter what I do -
I only want to have a brew

Great concept. Some really clever lines and a few awkward phrases but catchy and witty. Easily tweaked. A stein fulla fives for you. Go to the head of the class.

"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day." - Dean Martin

I decided awhile back not to drink anymore. Then again, I'm not drinking any less... L'Chiam!!!

Would prefer credit to Dusty Springfield, who made a bit hit of it well before BCR. With all due respect to Jonathan, pacing is off in several places, incl. the bridge and the ""Cause you started something"/I know I'm into something" lines, among others. Otherwise, a good write about a hobby -- got any samples? :) 455

Tommy, I personally remember only the BCR version - I was a child back then when they playied in radio, and I remember how the older girls all wanted to wear "Scottish plaid". But if you ever come to Finland, I will roll in the barrels and we'll have a barrel of fun.

I had a friend Rick who was into homebrewing. He had special batch "17", which was made with cannabis. Good parody beer, err, here, Susanna.

A tasty home-brewed concoction that's hops ahead of the standard parody!

Susanna - Lots of spirit in this one.

Q - Can beer make you smart?
A - It made Budweiser.

Now you have me whinin' for a beer. Fine write Susy.

Susanna, *that* is an offer I can't refuse! -- although, of course you realize that we just defined an age gap between us... but I'm game if you are! ... and, uh, it's a little warmer where the turtles swim... care to don your swim Finns over here?

Susanna, your English is so good that I forget that it's a second language for you, and I know how hard it is to write puns or to pace a song in a non-native language. I've done it once (in Spanish), and it's a challenge. I probably should have made some allowance there -- for a non-native speaker, the pacing is really pretty close. Congrats on such an excellent command of English that I never even thought about it. Skoal!

TT, actually English is my third language. Swedish is my second.
TT - September 10, 2009 - Report this comment
Duly noted. However, a common idiom in English is to refer to any non-native language as a "second language", regardless of in which order you learned them. Thus, one could have a dozen "second languages". I wouldn't say that Spanish is my second language and German is my third language; they're both "second languages". It's just a figure of speech. Second Skoal!
