"It Was a Very Good Beer" is a song sung by Homer as he was tipping his beers down the sink.


Well, beer, we've had some great times.
When I was seventeen,
I drank some very good beer,
I drank some very good beer
I purchased with a fake ID.
My name was Brian McGee,
I stayed up listenin' to Queen
When I was seventeen.

Behind the Laughter[edit]
