I WANT A BEER

I WANT A BEER JUST LIKE THE BEER
THAT PICKLED DEAR OLD DAD.
IT WAS THE BEER AND THE ONLY BEER
THAT DADDY EVER HAD;
A GOOD OLD-FASHIONED BEER WITH A HEAD OF FOAM.
IT TOOK TEN MEN TO CARRY DADDY HOME.
OH, I WANT A BEER, JUST LIKE THE BEER
THAT PTICKLED MY OLD MAN.

Submitter comment: SUNG TO THE TUNE OF " I WANT A GIRL
JUST LIKE THE GIRL THAT MARRIED
DEAR OLD DAD".

The Cellar of Old Sigma Pi

Give a yell, give a cheer
For the men who drink the beer
In the cellar of old Sigma Pi.

They are brave, they are bold
And the liquor they can hold
Is a story that's never been told.

For it's guzzle, guzzle, guzzle
As the beer runs down their muzzle
Drink boys and never go dry.

And it's more, more, more,
As the cops rap on the door
In the cellar of old Sigma Pi.

Drink a Highball

(sung to "Clementine")

Drink a high-ball at night-fall, be good fellows while you may,
For tomorrow may bring sorrow, so tonight let's all be gay.

Tell the story of the glory of our grand Old Sigma Pi,
Drink a high-ball at night-fall to the health of Sigma Pi.

The Goblet Song

Get out the old silver goblet with the Sigma Pi upon it
And we'll open up another keg of beer.
It's a damn fine college, but we didn't come for knowledge
And so we'll raise hell while we're here.

Bring out the old silver goblet with the Sigma Pi upon it
And we'll open up another keg of beer.

There's enough for all the brothers so to hell with all the others
And we'll raise hell while we're here.
