The Lyrics

Momma said don't go near that tavern,
Don't be hangin' round old Kraut Dish John
Spite the warnin', I'm always down there
Eatin' "Brats" and cabbage,
Drinkin' lager beer down...

Old John plays on a big brass tuba,
Oompa songs of long ago
Drinkin' tunes, like Lichtensteiner
And the foamy brew does flow

Along with John, I play the oboe
Tunes, bar patrons will request
Good friends raise their mugs of lager
Every night's Octoberfest..

Momma said don't go near that German,
Don't be hangin' round old Kraut Dish John,
Spite the warnin', I'm always down there,
Eatin' "Brats" and cabbage,
Drinkin' lager beer down...

Brother Dave - he's the tavern owner
Waitress Jill hangs quite a pair
Trays of glass mugs, ten..she'll carry
Though the load is hard to bear..

Momma said don't go near that tavern,
Don't be hangin' round old Kraut Dish John,
Spite her warnin', I'm always down there,
Eatin' "Brats" and cabbage,
Drinkin' lager beer down...

Momma said don't go near that tavern
Don't be hangin' round old Kraut Dish John,
Spite the warnin', I'm always down there.........

Really enjoyed the OS, which I never heard before (and I thought I knew every song from 1970-1974).

Particularly like the line "every night's Oktoberfest"
