I took 2 years of German wa-a-a-ay back in high school. We started every class with singing a beerhall song. There was a different one each day. The following solidified a bucket list accomplishment that I completed - a visit to the Hofbr�uhaus...

"In M�nchen steht ein Hofbr�uhaus, ..."

Now that sounds like the type of class I'd like to attend: singing beerhall songs!

Was there bier served too?

Or was that more of an extra curricular activity?

BIER BITTE.....

Jawohl Beetle..........Yes indeed.

And here is a Munich Oktoberfest song for all you gals and guys who want to learn a German Biergarten/Bier Hall song.....well a Bier Hall is only an inside Beer Garden and the Oktoberfest is a sort of enormous beer garden isn't it?

This is the song:

There Has To Be Some Fun in Life - Ein bisschen Spass muss sein,

Here is a rough, very rough, translation:

There has to be some fun in life, because then the world is full of sunshine,
And as far as we understand it that is how it will always be,
There has to be a little fun, because then happiness comes naturally,
And we will sing about it day in and day out.
There has to be some fun in life.
There has to be some fun in life, because then the world is full of sunshine,
And as far as we understand it that is how it will always be,
There has to be a little fun, because then happiness comes naturally,
And we will sing about it day in and day out.
There has to be some fun in life.


Here is the German text:

Ein bisschen Spass muss sein, dann ist die Welt voll Sonnenschein!
So gut wie wir uns heute verstehn, so soll es weitergehen!
Ein bisschen Spass muss sein, dann kommt das Gl�ck von ganz allein!
Drum singen wir tagaus und tagein
Ein bisschen Spass muss sein!
Ein bisschen Spass muss sein, dann ist die Welt voll Sonnenschein!
So gut wie wir uns heute verstehn, so soll es weitergehen!
Ein bisschen Spass muss sein, dann kommt das Gl�ck von ganz allein!
Drum singen wir tagaus und tagein
Ein bisschen Spass muss sein!



And at the beginning the guy says

Du bist der Hammer��the familiar version of You are Great/ You are totally awesome..........which of course you will be if you manage to finish your first lesson cool
