Rockin' the Beer Gut, on the surface, reads like a song about a beer drinker's guzzling pride. But the tune is, in reality, an ode to gaining weight because this guy rocks a 'cheer gut' due to the fact that he "loves the way your cookies taste." It has a slightly urban feel to it, particularly when a children's choir chants, "Go Santa!" However, the instrumentation is country, through and through. One imagines many a man's beer gut grows a few inches during the holiday season. But in this case, Trailer Choir has the guts to admit to a much more sentimental side.
