Alcohol (Kinks Cover) Songtext
Here's a story about a sinner

He used to be a winner who enjoyed a life of prominence and position

But the pressures at the office and the socialite engagements

And his selfish wife's fanatical ambition

It turned him to the booze
And he got mixed up with a floozy

And she led him to a life of indecision

The floozy made him spend his dough

And left him lying on Skid Row

A drunken lag in some Salvation Army Mission

It's such a shame

Oh, demon alcohol

Sad memories I can't recall

Who thought I would say
Damn it all

Blow it all

Oh demon alcohol

Memories I can't recall

Who thought I would fall a slave to demon alcohol

Barley wine, pink gin

He'll drink anything

Port, Pernod, or tequila

Rum, scotch, vodka on the rocks

As long as all the troubles disappear

He messed up his life when he beat up his wife

The floozy's gone and found another sucker

She'll turn him to the drink

She'll lead him to the brink

And when his money's gone she'll leave him in the gutter

It's such a shame

Oh demon alcohol

Sad memories I cannot recall

Who thought I would fall

A slave to demon alcohol.
