De Goot Lager Beer.
Tune- " Bold Privateer."
I I'll sing to you a song dat you all likes to hear.
It's about a drink dat sobers you and makes you feel so queer,
It ish goot for de stomach, it ish goot for de head,
It ish goot to make dinner mit de Switzercase und bread.
I De nice lager bier, de goot lager bier,
Dere's noting in dis world like de bully lager bier.
It ish goot for de husband, it ish goot for de frau,
It ish goot for her temper ven she vants to kick up a row;
It ish goot for de baby ven it feels a little queer,
It ish goot for de belly grubs, is dis goot lager bier.-Chorus.
It ish goot for politicians ven dey vant to catch a vote,
It keeps de lies from sticking in de throat;
It ish goot for de congressmen ven dey vant to fight a duel.
For dey cannot hit each other from a shackass or a mule.-Chorus.
It ish good for de maiden ven she gets up do love sick,
For it cures de highsterics, till deir face shine like a brick;
It ish goot for de fashion, for it saves the hoopskirts fine,
For ven dey drink a barrel up dey need no crinoline.-Chorus.
It ish goot for de preacher ven he preaches off de church-roof,
For he vill baptize you mit lager till he finds you devil-proof;
It ish bad for de doctor, for it von't make folks get sick,
It makes de peebles send jalap to de beer vaults of old Nick.-Chorus
It ish goot for a feller ven he vants to have a spark,
For it tickels up his courage till he comes up to de mark;
It ish goot for a gal ven she vants to catch a feller,
It makes her just as cunning as a mouse down in de cellar.-Chorus.
It ish goot for matrimony, for it makes a frau feel blest,
It brings de milk of human kindness and peace to her breast;
I've got a nice young wife, and a little baby dear,
It all comes from drinkin' of the goot lager bier.-Chorus.
