Under the Anheuser Bush was an early-1900s popular song commissioned by the Anheuser-Buschmarker brewery. Its name is an obvious pun on the company name. In fact, the German word "Busch" is equivalent to the English word "bush".

The chorus, as sung by Billy Murray, is as follows. In addition to the instrumental reference, the line "come and have a stein or two" is also sung to the first bar of the German folk standard "Ach du lieber Augustin":

Come, come, come and make eyes with me
Under the Anheuser bush
Come, come drink some "Budweis" with me
Under the Anheuser bush


Hear the old German band... [band plays first bar of "Ach du lieber Augustin"]
Just let me hold your hand - ja-a!
Do, do come and have a stein or two
Under the Anheuser bush


An instrumental version of the song appears in the MGM movie Meet Me in St. Louis where Judy Garland is whirled around the dance floor by a number of prospective beaus.
