More Beer Songs
By Ingmar Krause

Did anyone already mention the "Bier-Walzer" by D. Hartmann?  I don`t
know if it has any text, but it is Number 3617 for 24 Ariston, Ehrlich,
Leipzig.

Does anyone know the famous: "In Muenchen steht ein Hofbraeuhaus"?  :)
Or: "Ein Prosit der Gemuetlichkeit"?   :)

I hope this hasn't been on here before (haven't read all Beer-Song
articles), but what about the "More Beer" song?  It's Number 8469 by QRS.
The original title of the melody is "Der kreuzfidele Kupferschmid".

"More Beer" Text:

  On Saturday night we get together for a glass of beer,
  the people know that there will be good cheer.
  We chatter and smile and drink awhile, 'cause we are friendly folks.
  We talk a lot and laugh a lot and tell each other jokes.

  Then we shout, "MORE BEER" and we bang our glasses down.
  There's no doubt: more beer and our troubles all will drown.
  And we never fear, 'cause there's lots of beer in town,
  raise your glasses and shout loud and clear, "MORE BEER".

P.S.:  What's the next topic?  Love-Songs?  :)  'Twould be normal; the
most common content for songs is either love (or lost love) or drinking.
(Does anyone have statistics for that?)   :)

P.P.S.:  Hey!  Wait!  I just realize that I have an idea for the
next topic:   Cabaret/Review songs !

I'm looking for such things for I hate to keep playing on and on this
folk-stuff.  Playing "Rosamunde" a thousand times doesn't quite make lots
of fun, does it?  So I would be looking for well known humoristic songs.
Any ideas?

 [ I like your idea, Ingmar!  To start: what are the famous cabaret songs
 [ in the classic Marlene Dietrich cinema, "The Blue Angel"?  I know the
 [ movie was produced with both German and English sound-tracks.  Were
 [ the songs published in two languages also?  Do music rolls exist?
