In a forum about 50/90 over on FAWM.org someone posted that they really don't get started or comfortable until beer number three and it got me thinking. So I wrote the lyric to this really fast. Then I just put the simple common chord progression to it. This is a one take acoustic/vox all recorded at once type of demo. Just to get it done so I can go to bed and be up early for work.

With beer number one Iím ready for fun
But I just canít get too relaxed
Gotta find a chair with nobody there
Gotta find me a place to collapse

Beer number two goes down real smooth
As I start  to get  loosened up
I start to sing as I shake that thing
Boy can I cut a rug

Solo

With beer number three I start to believe
I can do most anything
I boast with the best and wager the rest
I have the whole word on a string

With beer number four Iím ready to pour
A shot of jack on the side
I let it slide down Ďtil Iím ready to drown
This bar is a carnival ride

Solo

With beer number five I really come alive
Are you ready for an awesome night?
Donít be dishearted Ďcuz weíre just getting started
Everything will turn out right

Solo

Robert Johnson look out - now that's a drinking song! That is a good song to have up your sleeve for a boozy night. 

Maybe doing a song a week has driven you to drink, I think it would have that effect on me...

If you can consider alcohol turning you a person into an asshole a medical problem, then I quit for medical reasons as well.

"This bar is a carnival ride"
- that's a great lyric.

Here's an additional verse if you ever decide to extend the song.

Beer number 10 and I'm p*ss drunk again
Don't think I'm gonna make it to work
My mind's in a trance and I just p*ssed my pants
Why does everybody think I'm a jerk?
