Is anyone familiar with the "Foster's Lager Song"? I heard a verse or two from an Aussie, but I don't remember any of it and I can't find any references on the web or here. The lyrics and/or the tune would be very nice.

Thanks for any help,

Dustin

Is this the one?

"... in England, "This Is Hip" has backed a television ad for Foster's Lager beer." (The Rosebud Agebcy - John Lee Hooker - Don't Look Back).

The only one I know is this:

Fosters lager, Fosters lager
Comes in bottles, cans or glass
It's the health food of the nation
Shove your icecream up your arse

I don't usually pass on sad news like this, but sometimes we need to pause and remember what life is all about. There was a great loss recently. Larry LaPrise, the Detroit native who wrote the song "Hokey Pokey", died at age 83. It was extremely difficult for the family to keep him in the casket. They'd put his left leg in and.....well, you know the rest . .

My Son works for Fosters So I've asked him to do some delving for a song. In the meantime here is a recent Fosters tv ad thats a spoken monologue;
I don't have a kangaroo for a pet,
I don't wrestle with crocodiles,
And I don't wear a cork hat,
I fight wars - but never start wars,
I would rather make peace,
I can wear my country's flag with pride,
I am a rock,
I am the island continent,
My brothers are the Smiths, the Wilsons, the Santerellis, the De Costis, the Wongs and the Jagamarras,
I play footd\ball without a helmet,
I like beetroot on my hamburger,
I ride in the front seat of the taxi,
I believe it's a prawn - not a shrimp,
I believe the world is round and down under is on top,
I believe Australia is the best address on Earth,
And Australians brew the best beer.

A bit jingoistic and long-winded for me. All they had to say was every other beer is crap and Fosters is shit-hot. Pretty simple really.

How many aussies, though, still drink Fosters? You very rarely see it on tap in pubs and clubs any more. I think it must now be brewed purely for the overseas market.

Give me a Carlton Cold any day.

Is it even brewed in Australia anymore? I remember when Löwenbräu started being brewed in the States. Just wasn't the same. (Costs a lot of money to cart those half-gallon cans of beer across a large ocean.)

When eating vegemite you learn to appreciate anything cold and liquid, even Foster's.

Having just sampled a "home brew" that looked and tasted like cats piss I can vouch for the fact that Fosters isnt as bad as that.

If you want a real Aussie beer though VB is the way to go. For the foreigners reading this post thats Victoria Bitter to you! Although on the other hand some of that yankee Budweiser brew is OK with a meal, tastes OK without the VB kick!

Cheers,

Andrez

Off topic somewhat, but this was one of the last songs to be sold around the fairs and markets of the rural West of Ireland in the early 1950s
The trade was referred to as 'ballad selling' and was carried out exclusively by Travellers
The song has obvious Australian connections, as it it based on Slim Dusty's 'Pub With No Beer'
Jim Carroll

THE BAR WITH NO STOUT
Now we've heard quite a lot of the Pub with no Beer,
And some people claim it's the hit of the year,
But during the war I was rambling about.
And I called for a Pint in a Bar with no Stout.

The bar owner sat on a chair by the fire,
I'd swear if you touched him he'd scrape like a brier,
When I said "Fill a Pint" then his rag he got out,
Saying 'Your order is tall in the Bar with no Stout".

A customer came in a donkey and car,
He tied up his ass and took in a big jar,
But the ass jumped and reared, from the door he pulled out,
It's no place for an ass near a Bar with no Stout

The Garda on duty the first time in years,
Came back from his beat all shaken with fears,
The Sergeant said Pat, why you look knocked about,        
He stammered and told him the Bars got no Stout.

The Postman returned from his rounds on the street,
And when be had entered his time on the sheet,
The Postmaster seeing no froth round his mouth.
Guessed on the spot that the Bar had nO Stout.

Now 'tis lonesome to part with the one you love dear,
Or to sit on a stool in a Pub with no Beer
But there's nothing more lonesome without any doubt,        
Than to call for a Pint in a Bar with no Stout.
