"A Skinful of Asbach" to the tune of "A brimful of Asha"

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by PapaGolf, Mar 15, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Any one remember this, it got a lot of air time on BFBS, 10 plus years ago. Anyone know the lyrics? Every time I see a bottle of Asbach in the NAAFI, it pops into my head and subsequently pisses me off like a jedward song
     
  2. If you could whistle it, it may help to jog someone's memory.
     
  3. Mmmmm Asbach. Much prefer it to froggie brandy.
     
  4. It's cheap nasty shit. End of.
     
  5. And I like it for just that reason......... well meths has so many issues!
     
  6. Asbach!!!! Overpriced turps for mincing gigolos and rent boys, Dujardin Golden Keys is the true stuff of squaddie nightmare and it's cheaper than windscreen de-icer!
     
  7. Not too worried about persec then Matt?
     
  8. Who's are those tweeds?

    Is your name Albert Postlethwaite perchance?
     

  9. I'm going for Matt Evans DOB 1972.

    Looking at the strides and the relativity of length v waist,two paces forwards and the arse should start to follow ;-)
     
  10. Cernunnos must be a little under the weather, somebody mentioned 'Pies'
     
  11. Asbach Gedopt (Asbach and coke in equal parts) AKA the Wiener Schnitzel, as it had the same amount of calories according to the barman in the Jr. Ranks Mess at 4(f) Wing.
    Rotten stuff, druther have a Himbeergeist.
     
  12. Not familiar with that one but here's a mildly amusing alternative lifted from

    I’m sweatin’ I’ve just got into Heathrow off of ‘t Kabul flight
    I’m paranoid I’m looking side to side
    Thinking ‘bout this bloody package what I’m tryin’ to Hide

    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    (said there’s a)
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE

    I’m shakin’, I’m shakin’ like a shittin’ dog
    Cos’ customs man, he’s clocked me
    He’s got me in his beady eye
    And if he finds what I’ve got
    I’m doing fifteen to life…

    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    (said there’s a)
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE

    I’m sweating, I’m running like a bastard
    Cos mi cover’s blown
    I’m bein’ pursued, by two sniffer dogs
    Gonna find mesen a toilet and deposit this log.

    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    (said there’s a)
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
    (said there’s a)
    Big lump of hashish up mi BACKSIDE
     
  13. I remember 'Skinful of Asbach' from BFBS as well. 98 or 99 (?). If I recall correctly, there was talk of releasing it as a single until copyright laws were taken into account!
