VERSE 1

 

Just last evening it came to me,

 

While sanerrin' 'round the cor-ner store.

 

They had my favorite beer priced at just three thirty-three. [$3.33]

 

And that was buy one - get one more.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Canned cervesa can't be out done.

 

Glass containers often are too clear.

 

Surely twenty-five cold ounces in aluminum,

 

Is perfect when it comes to beer.

 

 

CHORUS

 

When it's time for my birthday,

 

A twenty-five will do (just) fine.

 

When it's time for my birthday,

 

A twenty-five will do (just) fine.

 

A twelve’s too little,

 

And a forty's too high.

 

Meeting in the middle,

 

Is the only way to fly.

 

When it's time for my birthday,

 

A twenty-five will do (just) fine.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

While it's tempting to give a tie,

 

Or another shiny socket wrench.

 

Know that twenty-four by seven by three sixty-five,

 

I have a mighty thirst to quench.

 

 

CHORUS

 

When it's time for my birthday,

 

A twenty-five will do (just) fine.

 

When it's time for my birthday,

 

A twenty-five will do (just) fine.

 

A twelve’s too little,

 

And a forty's too high.

 

Meeting in the middle,

 

Is the only way to fly.

 

When it's time for my birthday,

 

A twenty-five will do (just) fine.

 

The End
