Title: Ol' Whiskey Breath

Ol' whiskey breath, you look like death
I take it she's left you again
Taken the kid, and your last shiny quid
Now you're staggering about in the rain
I told you to choose, between her and the booze
Looks like you took the wrong turning
Now she's filed for divorce, wants everything of course
What lessons are you learning?
Not many it seems, same impossible dreams
Went double or quits on the horses
Now you're going full throttle, with your half-empty bottle
Draining the Earth's alcohol resources

Ol' whiskey breath, more than a hair's breadth
From the reality of your situation
You say it's cool, tomorrow she'll call
But the poison's got you taking dictation
Now you seek a quick solution, a fast-love absolution
A painted face who trades it on the street
But you're way beyond discerning, take another wrongful turning
And now you're mixing with a different kind of meat
This is where I apprehend, though you used to be a friend
I must take you by the arm and lead you home
Before you sink much deeper, I must ask as head zoo-keeper
That you leave that bloody chimpanzee alone.
