For seven long years
She helped me spend my dough
Now I take her out
But she don't wanna know
That woman's got me drinking
Look at the state I'm in
Give me one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight, nine, ten bottles of gin

That woman's got me drinking
We used to have some fun
Now shrinks and astrologers
Have got me on the run
That woman's got me drinking
Look at the state I'm in
Give me one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight, nine, ten bottles of gin

She said she'd always love me
She said I'd be the one
Now look at the way she treats me
Just like a piece of scum
That woman's got me drinking
Look at the state I'm in
Give me one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight, nine, ten bottles of gin

If I had the guts to do it
I'd take a long goodbye
Instead I'll love her long and hard
And love her 'til I die
That woman's got me drinking
Look at the state I'm in
Give me one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight, nine, ten bottles of gin

Bottles of gin, bottles of gin, bottles of gin,
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
eight, nine, ten bottles of gin

    My InterpretationIf you were in a relationship with Shane Macgowan, you'd have to put up with a lot of obnoxious drunken behavior. The point of this song is to say that it's your fault.

    Pretty much the definition of a blame-the-victim mentality.

    It rocks, though. And hey, he warned you!
