"Beer" as written by and Aaron Barrett....
She called me late last night to say she loved me so
It didn't matter anymore but I say she never cared
And that she never will I'd do it all again
I guess I'll have to wait until then
If I get drunk well I'll pass out
On the floor now baby
You won't bother me no more
If you're drinkin' well you know
That you're my friend and I say
I think I'll have myself a beer

She called me late last night to say she loved me
So..? but I guess he changed her mind
Well I should have known it wouldn't be
All right, but I can't live without her
So I won't even try

Maybe some day, I'll think of what to say
Maybe next time I'll remember what to do
She looks like heaven, maybe this is hell
Said she'd do it all again, she'd promise not to tell!

If I get drunk well, I'll pass out
On the floor now baby
You won't bother me no more
(And she said)

It's OK boy cause you know
We'll be good friends
And I say, I think I'll have myself a beer

    My InterpretationThe lines that stand out:
    "She looks like Heaven, maybe this is Hell"
    He's saying he still has feelings for her, but she'll only put him through Hell again if he goes back to her.
    "If I get drunk and I'm passed out on the floor, you won't bother me no more."
    The thought of her doesn't bother him while he's intoxicated, but it's not really a good solution (which is why he words it so bluntly).

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a previous realtionship. We broke up on bad terms but still had a bunch of mutuall friends who would throw parties. She broke up with me, which left me with a lot of issues and stuff, so i started drinking.

    "She called me late last night
    To say she loved me so
    It didn't matter anymore,
    I'll say she never cared
    And that she never will
    I'd do it all again
    I guess I'll have to wait until then
    "
    Basically my ex would call me late at night to tell me she still loved me and that she cares about me, but thats all ruined to me because of what she did to me. I'd do it all over again until I'm able to fall back in love. If she did this to me, then she never cared at all about me.

    "If I get drunk well
    I'll pass out on the floor now baby,
    You won't bother me no more,
    And if your drinkin' well
    You know that you're my friend
    And I say I think I'll have myself a beer."

    to me that represents me getting black out drunk because either i thought about her or she was at the same party and i just completely erase my mind of the night. I mean, I wouldnt cause a scene at a party with a bunch of friends around cause she's there and im still not over what she did to me. So if i see her there, we'll be "friends" and i guess I'll down a beer.

    "She called me late last night
    To say she loved me, so
    But I guess he changed her mind.
    Well I should have known it wouldn't be all right
    But I can't live without her
    So I won't even try..."

    I still love her, I wont even try to get back with her, I know what will spawn from that. I should know better.

    "Maybe some day, I'll think of what to say,
    Maybe next time I'll remember what to do! (do, do, do)
    She looks like heaven, maybe this is hell,
    Said she'd do it all again
    She promised not to tell!"

    "Maybe some day I'll think of something to say to her, maybe I'll remmeber something to do to make things okay between us. She's so beautiful, but she has put me through some of the darkest times in my life. She told me that she'd hook up with me and promise not to tell her new bf at the time. What the fuck am I supposed to do?"

    "If I get drunk well,
    I'll pass out on the floor now baby
    You won't bother me no more
    (and she said) It's OK boy cause
    You know we'll be good friends and I say
    I think I'll have myself a beer
    I think I'll have myself a
    Woaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ohhhhhhhhhh oh
    Woaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ohhhhhhhhhh oh
    Woaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ohhhhhhhhhh oh
    Yeah Yeah Yeah!
    Oooh oooh Oooh!
    Woohoohooo!"

    Basically, if i get drunk enough I'll black out adn you don't get to me any more. You cant mess with my head any more.

    General Commenthey can you guys believe that some dumbass on the streetlight manifesto pages called reel big fish "emo with horns" i actually threw up, went into a seizure and had an anuerism at the same time... can someone plz agree with me that reel big fish is not emo. i am disgusted that someone could get their usually happy, or rightously angry lyrics, mistaken for emo.

    General CommentA sarcastic song about the fact that there can't be no friendship between boys and girls if there's feelings involved.
