The Lyrics

ok this is only my second parody and I'm not very good at this yet.....
It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Waitin for me to get high by drinkin' gin

He says, "Son, can I give you a beer?
Would you like some Bud or Miller?
Maybe a Samuel Adams?
Just as long as it doesen't taste like my rear"

La la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Give me a beer, I'm the drunk man,
Give me a beer, sometime.
Well, we're all in the mood to see you get high
So go get him some Miller Lite.

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And now I'm really drunk, I think I'm a monk
But there's something that's not right about me
He says, "Bill, I'll go get you some more beer."
As he burst out laughing
"Now just stay right here,
and I'll get some more beer."

Oh, la la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Now I think I'm a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
I think I'm in the navy, I'm chuggin' some Miller, baby,
And probably will be for life

And the crowd is getting louder
As the people watch me quickly get stoned
Yes, now I think that I'm a doctor,
but I'm really just thinkin 'bout Rome.

Give me a beer, I'm the drunk man,
Give me a beer, sometime.
Well, we're all in the mood to see you get high
So go get him some Miller Lite.

It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives more beer
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been comin' to see
To get some fun and entertainment here.
And now I'm a plastic surgeon
And then I'll jump off a building
And they sit at the bar and put beer where I can see
And then tell me what they would like me to be.

Oh, la la la, de de da
La la, de de da da da

Give me a beer, I'm the drunk man,
Give me a beer, sometime.
Well, we're all in the mood to see you get high
So go get him some Miller Lite.

The only drawbacks to this are: a) doesn't pace the song meter, b) too many of the same words as the original, and c) not really funny enough. Swap some funnier lyrics in the place of Joel's. See my anagram parody, Agar Man, and how I had to struggle to use the same number of syllables...if you can sing it, it works.
