Thanks for sharing your solution, and for reminding me of the good old days on the PHP golf course. After digging out my old notes, I can finally share my PHP solutions too.

I had many different 173 strokers, such as (without bothering to use the routine PHP bitwise ~ golfing trick to reduce the " on the wall" strings below by one char):

<?for(;$c=($b=++$n." bottle$s of beer")." on the wall",99^$x="$c, $b. $z$x";$s=s)$z="Take one down and pass it around, $c. ";echo$x."Go to the store and buy some more, $c."; <?for(;$c=($b=++$n." bottle$z[20] of beer")." on the wall",99^$x="$c, +$b. $z$x";)$z="Take one down and pass it around, $c. ";echo$x."Go to the store and buy some more, $c."; <?for(;99^$x=($c=($b=++$n." bottle$x[21] of beer")." on the wall").", +$b. $x";$x="Take one down and pass it around, $c. $x")?><?=$x,"Go to the store and buy some more, $c.";
I had a mental block and just could not get to 172!

After I had given up, ToastyX mercifully gave me a hint, and then I finally did get to 172 -- but did not submit either of these two below because I would never have thought of them without ToastyX's hint:

<?for(;99^$c=($b=++$n." bottle$x[21] of beer")." on the wall";$x=" Take one down and pass it around, $c. $c, $b.$x")?><?="$c, $b.$x Go to the store and buy some more, $c."; <?for(;99^$c=($b=++$n." bottle$s of beer")." on the wall";$s=s)$x=" Take one down and pass it around, $c. $c, $b.$x";echo"$c, $b.$x Go to the store and buy some more, $c.";
