I had a dream last night where everybody around me was drinking beer for breakfast. And I thought. I want to do that. I want to drink beer for breakfast.

All I wanna do is drink beer for breakfast
All I wanna eat is them barbeque chips
All I want is someone to just try and protect us
You can try but never wanna try and defect us

I telling you I am through
Mama’s baby boy is a bum

All I wanna do is stay in this life
All I wanna pick is your nose, honey, hi
Sweet little corny you’ve gotta be husky
I am dreaming of a white Christmas

Honey where I’m from
Mama’s baby boy is a bum
Honey where I’m from
Halle-fucking-lujah
I’m a bum

Baby boy’s a bum
Baby boy’s a bum
Baby boy’s a bum
All I wanna do is drink beer for breakfast

Actually it really isn’t that odd. All the way up until the 17th century, Northern Europeans drank beer at every meal. It was safer than drinking water and more nutritious. Apparently archeologists have discovered evidence of beer making in Mesopotamia dating back 4000 years. Anyway, it’s been around a while. I remember reading about pregnant women in medieval times drinking beer for breakfast. It was compared to a loaf of bread.

So I could just have a slice of “bread” for breakfast.

When you look up Beer for Breakfast on the internet you get all kinds of recipes that have beer in them. Beer muffins and stuff like that. What for? Just pop a brew instead. A lot less trouble.
