The Lyrics

You call me up, invite me round with all the guys
I say okay, got nothing better to do
But if you're gonna cook outside
There'd better be cold drinks supplied
If you've got the esky filled
Then you know I'll be there

Barbecue today sounds nice
Long as you keep the beer on ice
Give me a steak, you know beer goes
Really well with it

Think there's cricket on TV, so turn the game on
I really hate to watch it by myself
Nothing makes my life as complete
Standing round in the summer heat
And hanging out with all my mates
And you must agree

Barbecue today sounds nice
Long as you keep the beer on ice
Give me a steak, you know beer goes
Really well with it

This kind of recreation
It's perfect relaxation
Feels like I'm on vacation
Beer is a grand creation

I've still got lots of room left over for some seconds
Give me a sausage and a beef kebab
And what the hell, another steak
Let's see how much food I can take
And when I need to wash it down
Back to the drinking

Barbecue today sounds nice
Long as you keep the beer on ice
If we run out, I think you'll find
That we will all leave you behind

Hope there's lots of beer on ice
I'm lost in a drunken paradise
And I will take some home tonight
Put it in my fridge

Boy, you sure are making it difficult to avoid that "shrimp on the barbie" joke. I'll come, but do we have to watch cricket?

Melhi: Thanks! You're stuff isn't bad either, I suppose. ;) Rick: I don't actually watch cricket myself, so you'd be safe. It did seem to go with the theme of the parody, though.
