The Lyrics

I wrote this from the point of view of a guy(or a chick if you must) at a wedding(or some other formal occasion) where they didn't serve beer.
(dual guitar intro)

So, so you like fruit cocktails
But can you tell
It's not quite the same
It doesn't have the same feel
As a cold rich ale
That's worth more than a pail
Of that fruit cocktail

Did they give you champagne
To make your toast
Long Island Ice Tea
Sangrea and Seabreeze
These drinks make me ache
I want to exchange
These beverages just for more
Of that beer, just a taste

(weird but amazing solo)

How I wish, how I wish you were beer
I've got two pretzels sitting in a glass bowl
Tear after tear
Been running over this whole ground
What have I found, there's no more here
Wish you were beer

A place where they don't serve beer? We call that "Hell". Good job.
