The Lyrics

I drink Purell in lieu
of booze or wine.
Beer, ale are off the menu, too.
I'm through dinin’,
my teeth are shinin’.

It’s made for the hands, but
I’m swiggin’ it down.
Friends think I’m a damn nut—
when I slam that hand stuff down, they frown
and say, “We’re tellin’ you,
that crap ain’t fine,
not fine!”

In their view
I’ve a screw
loose, or two.
But I’m due,
and right now,
to have a share
of delicacy
so out they bow,
clear of me.

I pump Purell into
that gut of mine.

Made me laugh! I once drank a shot of Vitalis when I was a kid.

So crazy, but true: "recovering" alcoholics find all sorts of clever substitutes. Staying clean - yer doin' it wrong.
