THE SOUSE FAMILY

DRINK, DRINK, DRINK, DRINK; DRINK, DRINK, DRINK, DRINK,
DRUNK LAST NIGHT, DRUNK THE NIGHT BEFORE,
GONNA GET DRUNK TONIGHT LIKE I NEVER GOT DRUNK BEFORE;
FOR WHEN I'M DRUNK I'M AS HAPPY AS CAN BE.
FOR I AM A MEMBER OF THE SOUSE FAMILY;
AND THE SOUSE FAMILY IS THE BEST FAMILY,
THAT EVER CAME OVER FROM OLD GERMANY.

THERE'S THE HIGH LAND DUTCH,
AND THE LOW LAND DUTCH,
AND THE ROTTERDAM DUTCH,
AND THE GOD DAMN DUTCH.

CHORUS:
GLORIOUS, GLORIOUS, ONE KEG OF BEER FOR THE FOUR OF US,
OH, GLORY BE TO GOD THAT THERE ARE NO MORE OF US,
FOR ONE OF US COULD DRINK IT ALL ALONE, DAMN NEAR!
OH, WHAT'S THAT SMELL ON THE EVENING BREEZE,
IT'S THE GOD DAMN DUTCH AND THEIR LIMBURGER CHEESE.

CHORUS:

WHEN GOD MADE THE IRISH HE DIDN'T MAKE MUCH,
BUT THEY'RE A HELLOFALOT BETTER THAT THE GOD DAMN DUTCH.

CHORUS:

OH, THE GREAT STATE OF TEXAS IS A HELL OF A PLACE TO BE,
THE TEMPERATURE IN THE SHADE IS A HUNDRED AND NINETY-THREE;
THERE ISN'T ANY WATER, AND THERE ISN'T ANY GRASS,
JUST A LOT OF CACTUS TO PRICK YOU IN THE (CHORUS).
