(Drink to me drink to me drink to me drink to me drink to me)
A rose a carnation the lily and an orchid make such a pretty bouquet
But only the orchid was worthy of you so I threw all the others away
Then you took the orchid and you breathed on its petals and after a day or two
The flower still blooms but it scents not the orchids it carries the savor of you
(Drink to me drink to me drink to me drink to me drink to me)

So if you're gonna drink to me drink with your eyes and I'll never cry for wine
Or leave a kiss in an empty coffee cup then pass it from your lips to mine
Cause I've got a thirst burning way down in my soul and honey from a sugar tree
Is not half as sweet as the air that you breathe
Honey come here and drink to me drink to me drink to me
(Drink to me drink to me drink to me drink to me drink to me)
