Tom T. Hall

Tom T. Hall's, "I Like Beer"
Better Lyrics:
I like whisky. It makes me a jolly good fellow.

I like whisky. It helps me relax and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (Makes him feel mellow).

Beer is too lame, champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear.

This little refrain should tell why I'm frisky: as a matter of fact I like whisky.
Original Lyrics:
I like beer. It makes me a jolly good fellow>

I like beer. It helps me relax and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (Makes him feel mellow).

Whiskey's too rough, champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear.

This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I like beer.

Tom T. Hall's, "I Like Ouzo [parody of 'I Like Beer']"
Better Lyrics:
I like ouzo.

It's anise can taste downright liquor-ish.

I like ouzo.

Vodka hardly has taste, and rum's sweet aftertaste can get icker-ish.

(It can get icker-ish.)
Bad stains red wine makes.

Single malt much cash takes.

And beer sends me off to the loo so.

So I sing this refrain every time that I booze, "Oh,

As a matter fo fact, I like ouzo.
Original Lyrics:
I like beer.

It makes me a jolly good fellow.

I like beer.

It helps me relax; sometimes it makes me feel mellow,

(Makes me feel mellow.)

Whiskey's too rough.

Champagne costs too much.

Vodka puts my mouth in gear.

So this little refrain should help me to explain

That as a matter of fact, I like beer.
