It makes you think you're pretty tough
It makes you say thing off the cuff
and grossly over-advertised
and makes a fool think he is wise
or turn cartwheels in your best suit
and yet there is no substitute
the older and more pure it grows
but it can make you see rainbows
or you can find it at Elaine's
It makes the sun shine, makes it rain
and they never put in enough
but a bottle of gin is not like love
