Beer for Breakfast

Garland Davis

Early one day when the sun wouldn’t shine

I walked into the Hole in the Wall not feeling too fine

I saw two sailors with two honey-ko’s an’ San Miguel before ’em

And this was the song that I heard them singing

 

Chief forgive us and protect us,

We’ve been drinking beer for breakfast

 

Well my LBFM and I stopped by the table where they was sitting

And I couldn’t believe how drunk they were getting

I said “shipmates, have you been drinking long?”

They said ‘Just long enough to be singing this song”

 

Chief forgive us and protect us,

We’ve been drinking beer for breakfast

 

Well they passed me a bottle and I took a little sip

And it felt so good I just couldn’t quit

I drank some more and next thing I knew

All of us were sitting there singing this tune

 

Chief forgive us and protect us,

We’ve been drinking beer for breakfast

 

One by one every shipmate who could hear the sound

Heard our ruckus and they came around

And pretty soon the Hole was ringing

With the sound of the every sailor laughing and singing

 

Chief forgive us and protect us,

We’ve been drinking beer for breakfast

    We would stop at the Economic Club in Olongapo in the morning on our way back to the ship for beer and pancit with eggs.

    Back in the day, the owner of the Sari Sari store at the corner of the street I lived on would be waiting with two ice cold San Miguels. I would drink them on the way to work. When onboard ship, when “lunch for the crew” was passed frequently headed to the Spanish Gate for a “liquid lunch.” That was a different era and a different Navy. Thanks for the memories PI!
