What are some good fun drunken songs you know?

Asked by ucme (45780points) February 8th, 2010

Everyone when drunk seems to believe they can sing like a bird or just for the hell of it. Some hilarious attempts are tried & gloriously failed. Some are well known songs but occasionally songs appear to be made up as we go along. The drunken song, any examples that you know or have indulged in yourself?

We sing this one at Civil War re-enactments and the Renn Faire. Every time it says the word “Grog” everyone stomps their feet.

The Grog Song

”(Chorus:)Well it’s all for me grog, me jolly jolly grog
It’s all for me beer and tobacco
For I spent all me tin with the lassies drinking gin
Far across the western ocean I must wander

Where are me boots, me noggin’, noggin’ boots?
They’re all gone for beer and tobacco
For the heels they are worn out and the toes are kicked about
And the soles are looking out for better weather
(Chorus)

Where is me shirt, my noggin’, noggin’ shirt?
It’s all gone for beer and tobacco
For the collar is all worn, and the sleeves they are all torn
And the tail is looking out for better weather
(Chorus)

I’m sick in the head and I haven’t been to bed
Since first I came ashore with me plunder
For I spent all me dough on the lassies movin’ slow
Far across the Western Ocean I must wander
(chorus)

Where is me bed, me noggin’ noggin bed
It’s all gone for beer and tobacco
Well I lent it to a whore and now the sheets are all tore
And the springs are looking out for better weather.
(chorus)

Where is me wench, me noggin’ noggin’ wench
She’s all gone for beer and tobacco
Well her (clap) is all worn out and her (clap) is knocked about
And her (clap) is looking out for better weather.
(chorus)”

I tend to sing songs that remind me of my heritage such as Flogging Molly’s Drunken Lullabies and Dropkick Murphys’ Barroom Hero. Anything with that Irish punk sound gets me going when I’ve had a pint of the black stuff.

It’d be fun to make up lyrics to the same beat, I betcha!

Yes, I’m aware the tune isn’t about drinking, per se…

@Bluefreedom Your first suggestion in your latest post had a better version. GT covered the magnificent John Lee Hooker. See?

Mamradpivo's avatar

I liked to try to remember all the words to my favorite Dylan songs when I’ve been drinking:

Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues or Desolation Row.

You can create some pretty fun lyrics of your own.

Any Irish folk song I suppose.

It’s a joke.

None the less; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGyPuey-1Jw

@forestgeek Second on The Piano Has Been Drinking but I couldn’t actually imagine singing that while drunk. Have you?

Bluefreedom's avatar

@Sampson. I had no idea that was an original John Lee Hooker song. Interesting.

We always sing “Billy Jean” or Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing”
