Booze is There
In the opera, at the drama,
Booze is there ! Sacred concerts, panorama,
Booze is there ! On the hill and in the valley, Open street or crowded alley, Even in the spotless ballet,
Booze is there !
In the parlour or the attic,
Booze is there ! Royal drinks or democratic,
Booze is there ! Where the School Board airs its teaching, Even when the parson's preaching, Or his flocks to pray beseeching,
Booze is there !
When little stranger comes to town.
Booze is there ! Mrs. Jones meets Mrs. Brown,
And Booze is there ! The baby's praised right down to the ground, Pronounced by all quite safe and sound, Then once again the glass goes round,
And Booze is there !
In climate cold or climate hot,
Booze is there ! Even in granny's old teapot,
Booze is there !
