The Lyrics

This is from a complete parody of "The H.M.S. Pinafore". The concept is the whole thing takes place in a bar like "Cheers" And Yes, it took a lot of beer to write it.
Never mind the rye and whisky
We love beer, and though it's risky
If we want the tappers open we must
Change Sir Hoseoff's mind
So let's not just sit here mopin'
Let's a proper answer find

Stop the actions of the owner
Who has really gone too far
He is pulling one big boner
Taking brewskis from this bar

I'm a man who gets his sips here

I'm a girl who gets her tips here

I'm a man who often trips here

And I meet a lot of drips here

Put the pitcher on the table
The solution's not complex
Drink until you are not able
To give a damn what happens next

Never mind the wine and bourbon
There is one thing that's disturbin'
Me and that is how can you complain
When no one pays his bill?
My poor father has been strainin'
While you sit and drink your fill

Say, she's right we should be paying
Or we won't get any more
Listen up to what she's saying
Or he's going to lock the door

And I don't find that amusing

So you better stop excusing

My life's purpose I am losing

Now you'll have to quit your boozing

Put the pitcher on the table
For the money will be found
We will only hear this fable
If you pour another round

Never mind all the tequila
It is beer for which I feel a
Certain satisfying stupor
And for which I'll always fight
Though my hangover is super
I'll be in here every night

Ralf, you know we're right behind you
You're the leader of us all
And we know where we can find you
Sleeping in the bathroom stall

So it's you that's been selected

So it's me that's been elected?

Someone with a brain infected

Someday that may be corrected

Put the pitcher on the table
We know you can do the job
Now you wear the union label
You're the leader of this mob
