SONG

DRUNK, DRUNK, DRUNK, DRUNK,
DRUNK, DRUNK, DRUNK, DRUNK,
DRUNK LAST NIGHT, DRUNK THE NIGHT BEFORE,
GOING TO GET DRUNK TONIGHT, LIKE I'VE NEVER BEEN DRUNK BEFORE,
FOR WHEN I'M DRUNK, I'M AS HAPPY AS CAN BE,
'CAUSE I AM A MEMBER OF THE SAUSS FAMILY.
OH THE SAUSS FAMILY IS THE BEST FAMILY,
THAT EVER CAME OVER FROM OLD GERMANY,
THERE'S THE HIGHLAND DUTCH,
AND THE LOWLAND DUTCH,
THERE'S THE ROTTERDAM DUTCH,
AND THE OTHER DAMN DUTCH.
SINGING GLORIOUS, GLORIOUS
ONE KEG OF BEER FOR THE FOUR OF US.
SINGING GLORY BE TO GOD, THAT THERE AIN'T NO MORE OF US,
SO ONE OF US CAN DRINK IT ALL ALONE.

SOCIAL REUNION: RIPPLE SONG

RIPPLE, RIPPLE R-I-DOUBLE P-L-E
RIPPLE, RIPPLE R-I-DOUBLE P-L-E
SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT RIPPLE'S JUST JUNK
BUT FOR 79 CENTS, IT'S A HELL OF A DRUNK.

RIPPLE IS NEAT AND RIPPLE IS COOL
I WISH I HAD RIPPLE IN MY SWIMMING POOL.

YOU CAN DRINK IT FROM A BOTTLE, YOU CAN DRINK IT FROM A GLASS
ANY WAY YOU DRINK IT, IT'LL KNOCK YOU ON YOUR ASS.

SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT RIPPLE'S JUST CRAP
BUT I ALWAYS KEEP RIPPLE IN MY STRAP.

WELL IT COMES IN RED AND PAGAN PINK
AND IT'LL KNOCK YOU ON YOUR ASS AFTER JUST ONE DRINK.
