==The trivial solution== The trivial solution to it would be this:

```99 to 1 by -1 foreach { n =>
println(
f"\$n%d bottles of beer on the wall\n" +
f"\$n%d bottles of beer\n" +
f"Take one down, pass it around\n" +
f"\${n - 1}%d bottles of beer on the wall\n")
}
```

### Running in parallel

The above n parallel using a ParRange, fast but shuffles the output.

```(99 to 1 by -1).par foreach { n =>
println(
f"\$n%d bottles of beer on the wall\n" +
f"\$n%d bottles of beer\n" +
f"Take one down, pass it around\n" +
f"\${n - 1}%d bottles of beer on the wall\n")
}
```

==Regex solution==

```object NinetyNineBottlesOfBeer {
val verse = """|99 bottles of beer on the wall
|99 bottles of beer
|Take one down, pass it around
|98 bottles of beer on the wall""".stripMargin

val song = new scala.collection.mutable.Queue() ++= verse.lines += ""
val Bottles = "(\\d+) bottles of beer.*".r

def changeLine(line: String) = line match {
case Bottles("0") => song clear ()
case Bottles(n) => song enqueue line.replace(n, n.toInt - 1 toString)
case _ => song enqueue line
}

def sing = while(!song.isEmpty) {
val line = song dequeue ()
println(line)
changeLine(line)
}
}
```
