Of all the really great songs from the Sixties, without a doubt, the one we sang loudest and with the most gusto, was 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall on the church youth group’s epic trip to Six Flags Over Texas.
I bet we sang it eleventy hundred thousand times, give or take. But more important than the sheer number, was the value the song had in building community.
When we were officially out of the church parking lot, every 12-year-old boy worth his salt was absolutely screaming out the lyrics.
99 bottles of beer on the wall
99 bottles of beer
Take one down and pass it around
98 bottles of beer on the wall...
