> It's from G. I. SONGS (1944), written, composed and/or collected by
>Men in the Service, pg. 208:
> FORTY-NINE BOTTLES
>Forty-nine bottles hanging on the wall,
>Forty-nine bottles hanging on the wall.
>Take one away from them all:
>Forty-eight bottles hanging on the wall.
>(If you're in the mood--and you might be!--you can continue this noble song
>all the way down to "One bottle hanging on the wall"--provided, of course,
>that your listeners haven't slain you by then.)
And let's not forgot the rarely heard final verse:
No bottles of beer on the wall,
No bottles of beer,
Go to the store,
Buy some more,
Ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall.
Due to the fact I have trouble with the 'pass it around' portion of the
instructions, I don't remember exactly where I read it...
