The Lyrics

Go to the well for booze—
the cheapest kind.
Less money that way I will lose
when I’m buyin’
and to lips plyin’.

Don’t give me fine brandy;
I won’t drink it down.
Whatcha got that’s handy—
any rotgut Old Grand-Dad around?
Please, just the well for booze—
the cheapest kind
is fine.

Here’s the news:
I love booze,
but I choose
not to lose
much gelt now.

The cheapest fare
is alright by me.
Forget the Dow!
Don’t port me.

Just pour me well-stored booze
and I’ll be fine.
