BOOZE, GLORIOUS BOOZE.

We've had lots of songs about eating-
Beefsteak and pork chops how they praise;
A change with success now is meeting,
For surely we're changing our ways;
I'll sing about something substantial
That causes delight forth to ooze;
The secret of Uncle Sam's glory
Is found in one word and that's booze, booze, booze, booze.
Booze, booze, glorious booze, get as much down as you can;
Booze of the best is good for the chest, good for the woman or man:
Policemen all cry for it, soldiers will die for it booze that will make a man snooze,
What makes you stronger, and makes you live longer, why booze, booze, booze.
Now after you've had too much eating,
You're awfully full, so to speak;
A terrible pain is your greeting.
And soon you become very weak;
It's twenty to one that good brandy
Is better, by far, than a steak;
Though grub may be ever so lovely.
But when you feel badly just take booze, booze, booze- Chorus.
A baby first takes to the bottle.
At milk He's a boozer, you bet:
And when he grows up into manhood,
A much stronger booze he will get;
It's good if you take as directed,
Be sure it's the right kind you choose.
So when you are eating free lunch, boys,
Remember to mix it with booze, booze, booze, booze.-Chorus.
