Title Cold Beer
v1
I hear all these songs about whiskey.
And I understand why.
If you can stay in control
You can have a have a real good time
v2
Me and whiskey dont see eye to eye
So I make myself stay clear.
I'll pour you a shot or two.
Me I'll stick to cold beer.
Chorus
Cold beer is my drink of choice.
It just agrees with me.
I lose control drinking the hard stuff
Like rum,brandy and whiskey.
If you ask what i'll have.
I'll tell you loud and clear
Reach in the cooler and pop a top
Cause me I love cold beer.
v3
Tequillas like a drug to me.
I taste it for days and days.
I stumble and act like a fool
Vodka and Gin leave me in a haze
v4
So give me a cold one.
It dosn't matter about the brand.
As long as it says beer on it.
And comes in a twelve ounce can.
Chorus
Cold beer is my drink of choice.
It just agrees with me.
I lose control drinking the hard stuff
Like rum,brandy and whiskey.
If you ask what i'll have.
I'll tell you loud and clear
Reach in the cooler and pop a top
Cause me I love cold beer.
Bridge
Twentyfour cans in a case.
Twentyfour hours in a day
Coincidense I don't think so.
Chorus
Cold beer is my drink of choice.
It just agrees with me.
I lose control drinking the hard stuff
Like rum,brandy and whiskey.
If you ask what i'll have.
I'll tell you loud and clear
Reach in the cooler and pop a top
Cause me I love cold beer.

I would change:

to

Cold beer is my drink of choice.
It just agrees with me.
I like the taste, I like the buzz,
And I really like to pee.

Just having a cold one now as I read this.....

I know where you're coming from with this! Like your other song, "Whisky Thinking", reads well, good lyrics, and a good slant on an old theme....nice one.

It's really good.

In verse 3 -

v3
Tequillas like a drug to me.
I taste it for days and days.

Vodka and Gin leave me in a haze

I changed it to "Vodkas leave me in a haze" because it worked better for me reading it that way. Otherwise, it's gonna have me smiling all the way to the fridge.

Best,

A :-)
