I like beer    (video)    (intro)

 

    E - A - D

 

          D                             G                      D

1. In some of my songs I have casually mentioned

                                                A

    the fact that I like to drink beer,

      D                         G               D

    this little song is more to the point,

          E                                A

    so roll out the barrel and lend me your ears.

 

           G                                             D

I like beer, it makes me a jolly good fellow,

           G        E                                                                                A   

I like beer, it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow.

(makes him feel mellow)

    D                                       G                       D

Whiskey’s too rough, Champagne cost too much,

                                         G

vodka puts my mouth in gear,

       G        Gm               D               B7

this little refrain should help me explain,

           E          A7             D

as a matter of fact I like beer.

 

            D                                            G             D

2. My wife often frowns when we're out on the town,

                                                   A

    and I'm wearing a suit and a tie.

                D                                        G                 D

    She's sipping vermouth and she thinks I'm uncouth

                  E                                 A

    when I yell as the waiter goes by.

 

+ CHORUS

 

      D                                        G                          D

3. Last night I dreamed that I passed from the scene,

                                                 A

    and I went to a place so sublime,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

            D                                G                D

    the water was clear and it tasted like beer,

               E                              A

    then they turned it all into wine. (ohhhh)

 

           G                                             D

I like beer, it makes me a jolly good fellow,

           G        E                                                                                A   

I like beer, it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow.

 - - - - - - - - - - - -   A7 - -

(makes him feel mellow)

    D                                       G                       D

Whiskey’s too rough, Champagne cost too much,

                                         G

vodka puts my mouth in gear,

                  Gm               D               B7

this little refrain should help me explain,

           E           A7            D

as a matter of fact I like beer.
