Drinking Songs


A drinking song is a song sung while drinking, that is, consuming alcohol. Some drinking songs are about drink, but many are not. Groups which still have a drinking song tradition include rugby players, hash house harriers, air force fighter pilots, and fraternities. Most drinking songs are folksongs and show variation from person to person and region to region in both the words and in the tunes used for the song.
