I’ll Just Have A Beer – Lyrics

Hello new city, it’s so nice to meet you

Been rolling ‘round the country this past year

Been drunk in nearly every state, you parrot heads are really great

But, damn those shots are really quite severe.

Tonga with a snake bite and a jumbie

Melons, fruit, drowned in Everclear

Yeah, Sandy’s sangrilly makes me real silly

If I have another I’ll be out, I fear.

You can have your Jose Cuervo, you can keep that damned Patron

No Fireball or Jaeger bombs up here.

When I start playing sloppy and singing things unclear

Please be kind, I’ll just have a beer.

Now, don’t get me wrong when I sing this song

I like a shot now and then.

But, that heavy sweet stuff makes me feel rough

And I can’t make it to the end…

So, you can have your Jose Cuervo, you can keep that damned Patron

No Fireball or Jaeger bombs up here.

When I start playing sloppy and singing things unclear

Please be kind, I’ll just have a beer. ..   line ‘em up…

I can see you back there in the bar line

What’s coming next, now is crystal clear

Dance around, push through the crowd, look at her, ain’t she proud

Smiling all around from ear to ear.

I don’t want you thinkin’ I’m a bad guy

I know that what you’re doing is sincere

So, when you make it to the front, I won’t be rude or blunt

I’ll just smile and thank you very much, my dear.

So, yeah, I’ll take your Jose Cuervo, and I’ll take that damned Patron

Sure, Fireball or Jaeger bombs right here.

Let’s get gone, let’s get loud, buy the whole damned band a round…  

But I’d be fine if I just had a beer.

Why thank you, Ma’am, I’ll just have a beer.
