Beer Run

All we need is a ten and a fiver
A car and a key and a sober driver
B double E double R U N Beer Run

A couple of frat guys from Abilene
Drove out all night to see Robert Earl Keen
At the KPIG Swine and Soiree dance
They wore baseball caps and khaki pants
They wanted cigs and so to save some money
They got one off a hippie that smelled kinda funny
Next thing they knew they was both really hungry
And pretty thirsty too

All we need is a ten and a fiver
A car and a key and a sober driver
B double E double R U N Beer Run

They found a store with a sign that said their beer was coldest
They sent in Brad cause he looked the oldest
He got a case of beer and a candy bar
Walked over to where them registers are
Laid his fake ID on the counter top
The clerk looked and turned and looked back and stopped
He said "Boy, I ain't callin' the cops,
But I am keepin' this card"
The guys took it hard

B double E double R U N Beer Run
B double E double R U N Beer Run
Oh how happy we would be
If we had only brought a better fake ID
On a B double E double R U N Beer Run

They met this other old hippie named Sleepy John
He claimed to be the one from the Robert Earl song
So they gave him the cash, he bought 'em brews
It was a beautiful day out in Santa Cruz
They were feelin' so good it shoulda been a crime
The crowd was cool and the band was prime
They made it back up to their seats just in time
To sing with all their friends
The road goes on forever and the party never ends

B double E double R U N Beer Run
B double E double R U N Beer Run
All we need is a ten and a fiver
A car and a key and a sober driver
B double E double R U N Beer Run
