Tonic And Gin

TONIC AND GIN

Tonic and gin, don’t let her come in
Don’t let her come in to my memory
She’s been there before, and made me feel sore
The girl that has made me so lonely

Tonic and gin, when did it begin?
We used to be happy together
A walk in the park, a kiss after dark
A romance I thought was forever

We used to be so happy, why did we have to part?
But how can I be happy, when I've got a broken heart?

Tonic and gin, you’re my only sin
I couldn't go on without you
Alcoholic kiss, ephemeral bliss
You take my pay and my mind too

It’s not easy to forget, the pain that I've been through
But tonight I'm not upset, I'm in an alcoholic stew

Tonic and gin, gets under my skin
And makes me feel happy again
But I wouldn’t know the rain from the snow
Something’s gone wrong with my brain

When the alcohol gets to my brain
And stops me from going insane
I will be free from the pain
And able to forget once again

Tonic and gin, gets under my skin
And makes me feel happy again
But I wouldn’t know the rain from the snow
Something’s gone wrong with my brain
