I'm looking for the words to a story about five drinking buddies.

Is this it? Furry Dice song If that's not it, post a snippet of the lyrics or something, so we know what to look for, OK?

As far as I know the title is "the five of us". Its a story of 3 men and two brothers who go drinking. The narrator tries to gives the names of the five men but continues to count the two brothers as one so he only comes up with four names.

All I can think of is FOUR of us, FOUR of us, one keg of beer for the FOUR of us, glory be, hurray the FOUR of us, the FOUR of us can drink it all alone... Is that closer? It's an old Oscar Brand, not sure if I can recall any other lyrics, but Mom still has the record.

Glorious, glorious one keg of beer for the four of us.
Singin' glory be to God that there are no more of us,
'cause one of us could drink it all alone.

Now, the first thing we drank to, we drank to the King.
Glorious, glorious, glorious King.
If he has one son may he also have ten.
Have a whole friggin' army cried the freshmen, amen. . .

Now, the next thing we drank to, we drank to the Queen.
Glorious, glorious, glorious Queen.
If she has one daughter may she also have ten.
Have a whole friggin' harem cried the sophomores, amen. . .

Now, the next thing we drank to, we drank to the Prince.
Glorious, glorious, glorious Prince.
If he has one mistress may he also have ten.
Have a whole friggin' whorehouse cried the juniors, amen. . .

Now, the last thing we drank to, we drank to our beer.
Glorious, glorious, glorious beer.
If we has one keg may we also have ten.
Have a whole friggin' brewery cried the seniors, amen. . .

Ok, since I have lots of my parents' records on mp3, voilà the Oscar Brand version, which is almost the same as Guest from 07 April, except Brand sings seniors first and freshman last, and he says they prayed for, rather than drank to, the king etc. On the Bawdy Songs Goes To College album. Song is called Glorious.

Initially it went

Drive a bus, drive a bus, one keg of beer for the five of us.

Such is the folk process, Mrrzy ;-)
