Does anyone know who sings The Beer Song?

by Kieran

I'm assuming that's the name at least. That's what I've always called it.


Anyway, it's a song about drinking beer, it's about a minute and a half long, and I've seen about a dozen different artists attributed to it including Weird Al, They Might Be Giants, Arrogant Worms, DVDA, Bob and Tom, Adam Sandler, hell just any comedy act you can think of, and I have no idea which one (if any) it was.

The lyrics (copied from another site) are as follows:

"Oh what is the malted-liquor
What gets you drunker quicker
What comes in bottles or in cans? (Beer!)
Can't get enough of it (Beer!)
How I really love it (Beer!)
Makes me think I'm a man
(Beer!) I could kiss and hug it (Beer!)
But I'd rather chug it (Beer!)
Fill my belly up to here (Beer!)
I could not refuse it (Beer!)
I could really use it (Beer!... Beer!...Beer!...)
I can't remember how much I have had
I drank a twelve-pack with my dad
That's my son the drunk and manly stud
I'm proud to be his bud
"Here have some pretzels"
"No, I'll call it quits. Those things give me the schlitz."
Drink with your family, drink it with your friends
Drink till you're fat, stomach distends
Beer is liquid bread it's good for you
We like to drink til we spew - ew!
Who cares if we get fat - I'll drink to that!
As we sing once more -
Oh what is the malted-liquor
What gets you drunker quicker
What comes in bottles or in cans? (Beer!)
Can't get enough of it (Beer!)
How I really love it (Beer!)
Makes me think I'm a man
(Beer!) I could kiss and hug it (Beer!)
But I'd rather chug it (Beer!)
Fill my belly up to here (Beer!)
Golly I adore it
Come on da**it pour it
Do it for me brew it for me
Feed it to me speed it to me
The most wonderful drink in the world - Hooray!!"

Don't know exactly when this song came out, but the latest it could have been would be 2005 (that's about when I heard it first). I heard it when my brother's friend gave him a CD full of songs he'd downloaded (at the time, it was labelled as They Might Be Giants, but I've since found that it wasn't them). I wouldn't put it much earlier than the 90's, just because of the overall sound quality, but I have no idea.

I have found that the music is the Toreador Song from the opera Carmen (at least, the middle part is).

That's about all the info I have. Any help in finding who this is (preferably with a reliable source for your information) would be greatly appreciated.
