1904 Budweiser Commercial

[Song lyrics and link to recording below the break.]

Under the Anheuser Bush

Talk about the shade of the sheltering palms;
Praise the bamboo tree and its wide spreading charms.
There’s a little bush that grows right here in town;
You know its name, it has won such renown.

Often with my sweetheart just after the play,
To this little place then my footsteps will stray;
If she hesitates when she looks at the sign,
Softly I whisper, “Now Sue Don’t decline…”

(Won’t you)
Come, come, come and make eyes with me,
Under the Anheuser Bush;
Come, come, drink some “Budwise” with me,
Under the Anheuser Bush.
Hear the old German band (Ach du lieber Augustin)
Just let me hold your hand (“Ja?” “Sure!”)
Do, do, come and have a stein or two,
Under the Anheuser Bush.

Crave about the place where your swells go to dine;
Take just you and me with our sandwich and stein.
Underneath the bush where the good fellows meet;
Life been worth living, our joy is complete.

If you’re sad at heart, take a trip there tonight;
You’ll forget your woe and your eyes will grow bright.
There you’ll surely find me with my sweetheart, too;
Come down this evening, I’ll introduce you.

(Won’t you)
Come, come, come and make eyes with me,
Under the Anheuser Bush;
Come, come, drink some “Budwise” with me,
Under the Anheuser Bush.
Hear the old German band (Ach du lieber Augustin)
Just let me hold your hand (“Ja?” “Sure!”)
Do, do, come and have a stein or two,
Under the Anheuser Bush. (If you got the goods!)

Come, come, drink some “Budwise” with me,
Under the Anheuser Bush;
Hear the old German band (Ach du lieber Augustin)
Just let me hold your hand (“Ja?” “Sure!”)
Do, do, come and have a stein or two,
Under the Anheuser Bush.

In other words, this song can be summarized by “Hey, b****, let’s pound down a coupla 40s, split a Big Mac and have some fun.” I bet the Bud brewed back in 1904 packed a punch and didn’t taste like carbonated water, either.

Listen/download the song by Collins & Harlan, 1904.
