I FOUND A FRIEND IN ALCOHOL
(C.J. Dekker)
THE WILDCATS (GO CATS GO, 1986)

When I was just a little bitty boy
Didn't care for trains or any other toys
Sneaked into bars just to watch the people drink
That's where I got an influence I think

Got a chemistry set at the age of twelve
I thought I'd brew the stuff myself
Blew the house up twice, burned the henhouse down
That's when my folks turned me out of town

But I found a friend in alcohol
And now I'm drinkin' drinkin' drinkin' all night long
Spend my nights with women, wine and song
I've been drinkin' whiskey, beer and gin
You should see the state I'm in
Drinkin' drinkin' drinkin' all night long
(Let's bop!)

I went to the woods to built a still
That's where I thought I'd get my thrill
Long wiskey nights I spent in town
Drinkin' that booze and hangin' around

Don't want no woman, don't want no wife
Screamin' and yappin', not on your life
Should I ever feel too blue
My alcohol will see me through

'Cause I found a friend in alcohol
And now I'm drinkin' drinkin' drinkin' all night long
I spend my nights with women, wine and song
I've been drinkin' whiskey, beer and gin
Said, you should see what state I'm in
Drinkin' drinkin' drinkin' all night long
(Let go again!)

There's a moral in this half wit song
Drink alcohol, you can't go wrong
Drink it morning, noon and night
My alcohol is my delight

I found a friend in alcohol
And now I'm drinkin' drinkin' drinkin' all night long
Spend my nights with women, wine and song
I've been drinkin' whiskey, beer and gin
Said, you should see what state I'm in
Drinkin' drinkin' drinkin' all night long
I've been drinkin' drinkin' drinkin' all night long
I've been drinkin' drinkin' drinkin' all night long
