[nsfw] Will you please tell me which drinking song is the best of all time?

Asked by Blondesjon (32198 points ) April 24th, 2012

Inspired by this question, I started to wonder which drinking song was the, uh, drinkiest.

My submission is The Blarney Stone.

For those of you who don’t click links, here are the lyrics:

“The Blarney Stone”

Get off my ass you wee bitty fuck
If I pull out the claymore you’re shit outta luck
Who’s that girl, that pretty young thing
After I fuck her she’ll get up and sing

Chorus:

Aye Aye Aye
Sharpen your boot, and bludgeon your eye
Aye Aye Aye
The Blarney Stone brings a tear to me eye

Down to the pub for a two shilling ale
The bread on the counter is going stale
If I don’t get some fresh bread soon
Gonna punch you in your face and bark at the moon

[Chorus]

Aint got no girl ‘cuz I haven’t the time
Got too many other things on me mind
Patty was nice she was pale and cute
But I threw her away like an old piece of fruit

[Chorus]

Got ooze in my pores my feet are all wet
Got mold in my ears but I ain’t dead yet
Got stones in me bladder got a crack in me head
When Patty starts cryin’ this is what I said

[Chorus]

After I finished waltzing around the room with @Blondesjon and cheering in Finnish, I’d drink to this…my new favorite, with very sophisticated lyrics.

It is either this one or this one
There are no other options.

In some of my songs i have casually mentioned
The fact that i like to drink beer
This little song is more to the point
Roll out the barrel and lend me your ears

(Chorus:)
I like beer. it makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer. it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (makes him feel mellow)
Whiskey’s too rough, champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear
This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact i like beer
(he likes beer)

My wife often frowns when we’re out on the town
And i’m wearing a suit and a tie
She’s sipping vermouth and she thinks i’m uncouth
When i yell as the waiter goes by

(Chorus)

Last night i dreamed that i passed from the scene
And i went to a place so sublime
Aw, the water was clear and tasted like beer
Then they turned it all into wine

I like beer. it makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer. it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow (makes him feel mellow)
Whiskey’s too rough, champagne costs too much, and vodka puts my mouth in gear
Aw, this little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact i love beer
(yes, he likes beer)

@gailcalled Baahahha being buried in a wine cellar at death, I love that.

Following in that wake, here’s Les Bâtards du Nord, (Northern Bastards, or Bastards of the North) with Piller donne soif. (pillaging gives thirst) It’s about getting drunk after fucking shit up. That’s not the song I was looking for, but I can’t find mine on YouTube, and it doesn’t really matter anyways, because three quarters of their songs are about getting plastered, ha. While drunk I can’t find a favorite one, they all rock. ^^

@ragingloli Dude, holy crap. That first one you have kicks ass. I have no idea what the hell it says, but still. Although I’m almost sure I heard the word ’‘blitz’’ in there.

Ici gît le des buveurs..

@Symbline: Sadly, I can understand none of the words from
Les Bâtards.

Pour toi; Joyeux enfants de la Bourgogne.
Quand je vois rougir ma trogne
Je suis fier d’être Bourguinon.

Yeah, Québec French isn’t anything like France French. I tried finding the lyrics for the song so you could read em, but Christ, can’t find em anywhere. :/

Also cool song haha. Again with the whole drinking to my grave thing…that rocks lol.

The summer after my senior year in HS, when I was 17, I lived with a family in Beaune. One of the ways I found to help learn the language was by singing all the folksongs. Joyeux infants was the first one l learned, including ma trogne

“The Old Black Rum” by Great Big Sea. I dare you to listen and not tap your feet or sing along! :)

“I Think I’ll Just Stay Here Drink’, Merle Haggard

Good drum part in this song.

Friends in Low Places definitely deserves a spot on the list.

From George Thorogood and the Destroyers: “I drink Alone” and
“One Bourbon, one Scotch, one Beer”
I like the live recordings the best.

Don’t do drinking songs, just piss about & well…..piss about.
The only time I hear drunks singing is when some sad old twat stumbles home in the early hours of the morning & that’s basically just a noise spewing from his gob.

After I moved from western PA to Colorado, I found a record from a classic rock radio station in Pittsburgh in a record shop in Colorado….I bought it just because it was a station I used to listen to, and it was an album from the 70s and had a bunch of local bands on it. Well, there’s a song called Pennsylvania Women and Kentucky Whiskey, and it is simply epic. I can’t find it anywhere online, and I no longer have a record player, so I fear I’ll never hear it again. But…..what a gem. That’s my vote.

@augustlan: That song appears prominently in the Richard Sharpe series for TV, taken from Bernard Cornwell’s novels about the Napoleonic wars.

It also shows up in O’Brien’s Aubrey and Maturin works. In fact, it show up in almost all historic novels about Napoleon. It’s a really rousing little ditty and can be used by any fighting group; even for the Nantucket Whalers vs. the Whale.

A choral version”. Google for dozens of others.

I feel the need to floss.

“Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer” deserves a nod, as well.
