A top ‘o the morning
To the Irish mead
To the bartender more tips
For this pleasant mead was
Sweeter than a fair maiden's lips
Over to the brisk taste of an amber
The refreshment of a smooth  pale
I was hanging on the edge
Waiting for my  cask-conditioned ale


Brian Hutton

Golden, amber, pale or porter,
doesn't matter,
just bring me a beer
clear as the Northern night,
fresh as the company I keep.
And maybe just one more before I sleep.


Marcus Kevin Fishly

There once was a man who did not have a fear
when he sat down and drank a six pack of beer
his belly did bloat, his weight it did rise
but the beer gave the feeling of being so wise

The thought of it cooling, so frosted and near
in the mug it sits so golden that beer
the taste is so good never bitter or queer
bringing always a laugh and never a tear

Many a time in that room full of cheer
a wrong emotion did come from that beer
it was never right to hold it so dear
replacing importance with just another cold beer

William Butler Yeats

A statesman is an easy man, he tells his lies by rote.
A journalist invents his lies, and rams them down your
So stay at home and drink your beer and let the
neighbors vote.


Oliver Holmes

Let schoolmasters puzzle their brain,
With grammar, and nonsense, and learning;
Good liquor, I stoutly maintain,
Gives genius better discerning.

Save Water Drink Beer
by Chris Young

It ain't rained in four months
One cigarette spark will burn the whole town up
That 'ole well is plum dry
The city put a limit on the water you can buy
We don't mind 'cause 'round here
We save water and drink beer

Ice cold, genuine, raise 'em up, drip 'em dry
Holler and swaller y'all
Support your local wildlife
Do your part around here
Save water and drink beer


Beer Thirty
by Brooks & Dunn

Life's too short, let's get to livin' it
Let's give it all we can give it
Let your hair down, turn the music up
We gonna paint the town flat, tear it up
The party starts here get in line
Beer thirty a honky tonk time

I put in my four day
I'm going home
Lord my get-up has got up and gone
Got my paycheck I'm on my way
It's finally Friday my kind of day
I punch the clock, I hit the road flying
It's beer thirty, a honky tonk time


Cod Beer Country
by  Toby Keith

It’s cold beer country
110 in the shade
Iced tea won’t cut it
And neither will lemonade
I need a cold Budweiser on a bar stool
And a jukebox by my dear
Singing cold beer country
'Cause it’s cold beer country round here

I’ve been getting out and getting in it all day long
Tonight I’m going out and getting it on
Sipping on a long neck working on a buzz
'Cause that's what everybody does


Pretty Good At Drinkin' Beer
by Billy Currington

I wasn't born for diggin deep holes
I'm not made for pavin' long roads
I ain't cut out to climb high line poles
But I'm pretty good at drinkin' beer

I'm not the type to work in a bank
I'm no good at slappin' on things
Don't have a knack for makin' motors crank, no
But I'm pretty good at drinkin' beer


Horray For Beer
by Bowling For Soup

Hooray for beer!
I'm really glad you're here
Let's make this moment last
You feel so right
Wanna be with you all night
Shout it out
Hooray for beer!

I could hold you in my hands forever
Or at least until you're gone
And then I'll order another one

Now everything is going my way
The sun's shining all around me
Bells are ringing and the birds are singing now
I wanna tell the whole world

Hooray for beer!
I'm really glad you're here

Beer Can
by Luke Combs

I’ve been working this job 9 to 5
Minium wage and overtime
But here comes a few days of unpaid vacation
And there ain’t no way jose i'll waste them
'Cause there ain’t no better feeling then when

I pick up a beer can
And get to feeling like superman
Its Friday night yah
Hears the plan
I'm gonna throw back a couple an'
Keep it 'em glued to my right hand
Any flavor, size, or brand
Until the point where I can’t stand
No, nothing picks me up like a beer can
