WILL NO ONE DRINK WITH ME?
1.) A Glass of Wine
Will no one laugh? Will no one drink with me?
I will teach you how to once again care
you look like you need a moment to spare
have a drink with me and fall into sea.
Do not ask if this is a trick or a joke
love both as I pour you a glass of wine
if you quickly finish yours please have mine
and soon they’ll call us both a Whiskey soak.
A sigh and a kiss the booze makes me blush.
hey look here! Look here! You listen to me
a time will come when laughter turns to song.
Heavens your lovely your alcohol flush
tonight we are busting out gettin’ free
be blind tonight and time will heal all wrong.
2.) Single Malt
Never blame booze it is always your fault.
Hey there, no fighting or you must get out!
Instead sing chorus with your swill and shout
not good at this must switch to a Malt.
Please stand by the speakers and feel the bass
let large empty vault echoes fill the place
ignore the fact you have lost all your grace
to think you may have broken ancient vase.
Your voice angelic beauty for first time
meet at the crossroads and drink to bring light
to drink the swill that robs us of our guts.
Though song is wretched it has some good rhyme
so blessed by this gift of double sight
be careful to not fall into road’s ruts.
3.) 80% Proof
In morning you will beg yourself to quit
for some reason you woke up in squalor
empty wallet not even a dollar
with such a pounding headache ears will split.
A time is needed to sweat out poison
since recovery is a proper art
ignore the need to heal and let us start
have a drink let’s continue our passion.
Once wet and bloated and ready to flop
and now a hangover to vex the boys
to hardly remember those shouts and screams.
Unlike the pig that feeds off its own slop
a child who no longer cares about toys
with a drink this world is not as it seems.
4.) Pint of Beer
Scratch shiny top rub potbelly for beer
when all your ill luck becomes mild and tame
ignoring problems is part of the game
to feel the burn is to live without fear.
Above all else this jolly company
to show you once again life can be fun
not everything’s dying under the sun
as we keep drinking towards one too many.
Come to this bottle everyday a feast
there is no wit here just boisterous noise
there maybe drinking but on narrow trails.
At time one howls like drunk demented beast
amazing what this alcohol destroys
with empty cocktail glasses at our tails.
