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,
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.

[ 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?
