  • 5 foot 2 and eyes of blue (the beer goggle blues) :
    When I went out a wenching on a night as fair as this,
    I had some trouble finding me a fine and lovely miss.
    I went into a tavern and I spied there in a chair,
    a lady I would have to say was quite beyond compare.

    She was 5 foot 2 with eyes of blue and weighed 500 pounds,
    and when she walked the ground would shake for miles and miles around.
    but she offered to buy me a drink and I said thank you Ma'am,
    and we ordered up another round and I began to slam.

    We talked about the weather and we talked about her folks,
    I told her lovely stories and she told me dirty jokes
    We laughed and laughed and laughed some more,
    'twas nice but had me thinking,
    that it would be much nicer still if we continued drinking.
    She was 5 foot 2 with eyes of blue and weighed 310
    she seemed to be getting smaller so I blinked and looked again.*

    I drank and drank and drank some more as I was in a hurry,
    the lady got much prettier as my vision got more blurry.
    And as we kept on drinking, well it was a shock to me,
    that slowly her huge hand had gone and crept up on my knee.
    She was 5 foot 2 with eyes of blue and weighed 183,
    and the more I had to drink you know, the better she looked to me. *

    And as the evening went I grew more and more elated, that generally comes easy when you're so intoxicated.
    She charmed me with her whaly wiles and made me want to cry,
    As the hand that had been on my knee had crept up to my thigh.
    She was 5 foot 2 with eyes of blue the fairest in the city,
    By this time there were five of her but all of her were pretty*

    I didn't want to leave the bar, I think that I was carried.
    I don't recall too much at all, except that now we're married.
    You ask me how I like the life, I say it's not too bad,
    'cuz her father's a brewer, her mom's like her, and I get drunk with dad.
    Yes, her father's a brewer, her mom's like her, and I get drunk with dad.
