SHUT UP AND DRINK YOUR BEER (Bob Newman) Doye O'Dell - 1949 Also recorded by: Luke Wills' Rhythm Busters; Merle Travis; River Band; The Rimshots. As recorded by DOYE O'DELL: (Drunk Voice: Hey, let's have some music) There's a place on the corner where the gang loves to meet Where the jukebox music makes you tap your feet In the middle of the evening when the spirits are gay The fat bartender, you will hear him say Shut Up!....(Who me?)....and drink your beer There's a man asleep 'neath the table in the rear Shut Up!....(I'm sorry)....and drink your beer It's time to have another Now Patrick Mahoney, he was always the same He'd lick any man with an Irish name The door it would open and Patrick walk in Now this is the place where the chorus begins Shut Up!....(I didn't do anything)....and drink your beer The man's still asleep 'neath the table in the rear Shut Up!....(Honestly)....and drink your beer It's time to have another As the place gets noisy and you know that it will The folks all around you seem to have their fill You all know the words from beginning to end So, one-two-three, let's all sing it again Shut Up!....(Now wassamatta?)....and drink your beer The man's still asleep 'neath the table in the rear Shut Up!....(Hey, you wanna fight?)....and drink your beer It's time to have another (Oh, excuse me) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2011)
