Do, Re, Mi

temple bar
Originally uploaded by sfarewell.

About this time last year I was walking down this street in Dublin. Each side of the street is lined with bars. Katie & I took the Musical Pub Crawl , the highlight of our stay in Dublin. Two local musicians took this crowd of tourists from bar to bar, playing music, dispensing history and downing a pint or 2. Katie's favorite part of this tour is when her mother stood up and, upon the request of the tour leaders, broke into song. Really, they begged me. The Guiness had nothing to do with it.

Today a friend asked me to write down the lyrics of this song. So I thought I would share the story and the song with all of you.

Sung to the tune of Do, Re, Mi from the Sound of Music:

Dough, the stuff that buys my beer.
Ray, the guy who sell me beer.
Me, the one, who drinks the beer.
Far, a long way to get beer.
So, I'll have another beer.
La, la, la, la, la, la beer.
Tea, no thanks I'm drinking beer.
Now I need more dough for more beer, beer, beer, beer ....

Enjoy the weekend!

Of course she forgot to mention that in Europe I could drink alcohol and was chugging it down when she sang that song. Mom also went up to the guys at the first bar and sang the song to them. So she gave them the opportunity to humiliate me with you singing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
