Dave’s Australia Day Advent Jukebox #6

BEER

A previously unreleased track but one I think is fun – Australian country style recorded 1988 at JJ Studios in Sydney as part of demos for what became the Surplus and Dearth album. Two tracks from the demo session, Was It Any Better and Beer were too country to fit with the others and so I held the tracks back and have been trying to record a country album ever since. Maybe this year Martin Cilia and I will finish that project. We have at least 16 tracks to choose from. Sheet music so you can play along! Hit the title above for the Bandcamp track. Downloads appreciated but not expected. Cheers!!!

I HAVE TRAVELLED ALL AROUND THIS DUSTY DIRTY LAND

I HAVE PLAYED IN PITS WHERE FLEAS WOULD NOT DEIGN TO LAND

I HAVE BACKED THE STRIPTEASE BELLES WITH AN OUT OF TUNE ROCK BAND

THERE’S ONLY ONE THING KEEPS ME GOIN ONE THING I UNDERSTAND

AND IT’S : BEER BEER BEER BEER MOST EVERY NIGHT

NOT A NICE WELL ROUNDED RED AND NOT A CRISPY WHITE

BUT A TANKARD OF THE FROTHY BREW THAT’S A WORKIN MAN’S DELIGHT

BEER BEER BEER BEER AND BEER

WELL SOUTHERN BOYS DRINK BOURBON AND IVAN MASHED POTATE

I’VE TRIED EM I’VE IMBIBED ‘EM BUT I HATE TO DEVIATE

FROM  THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW PATH IMPLIED BY THOSE WORDS I  LONG TO HEAR

BEER BEER BEER BEER BEER

AND IT’S : BEER BEER BEER BEER MOST EVERY NIGHT

NOT A NICE WELL ROUNDED RED AND NOT A CRISPY WHITE

BUT A TANKARD OF THE FROTHY BREW THAT’S A WORKIN MAN’S DELIGHT

BEER BEER BEER BEER AND BEER

WELL LEARNED EUROPEAN DRINKERS SWEAR BY ALMANAC

THE DANISH AKA-VIT AND THE ARABS SWEET ARAK

AND IT’S : BEER BEER BEER BEER MOST EVERY NIGHT

NOT A NICE WELL ROUNDED RED AND NOT A CRISPY WHITE

BUT A TANKARD OF THE FROTHY BREW THAT’S A WORKIN MAN’S DELIGHT
