  • WWII Drinking Songs

    I am trying to find the name or lyrics of a german beer drinking song sang by US troops in the Pacific. My grandfather sang it often. I dont know german, so here is how I remember the song phonetically (I have no idea what the words are supposed to be or what they mean). Does anyone recognize this?

    "Koma floglo mich lo mich a beshi en heinz"

    Thanks

    WOW, having spent a large part of my adult life sing German drinking songs with the German military I can't find a place to start. Sorry. Your heinez most likely is herz or heart the beshi could me a mangled forum for little. American GI's singing anything, the translation should automatically be questioned.

      OK, Thanks for checking. Who knows...it may just be a bunch of drunken words that are some mistranslation of German, or my memory of the song may be bad. Anyhow, just thought I'd check on this board before I forget it completely.

        Drink, drink, drink

        Here's a big time longshot as I am sure there are many others but this is the one I always think of as far as German drinking songs:

        No idea what german lyrics might sound like.
