"Alcohol (Kinks Cover)" as written by Sofie Livebrant and Svante Sjoblom....
Here's a story about a sinner
He used to be a winner who enjoyed a life of prominence and position
But the pressures at the office and the socialite engagements
And his selfish wife's fanatical ambition
It turned him to the booze
And he got mixed up with a floozy
And she led him to a life of indecision
The floozy made him spend his dough
And left him lying on Skid Row
A drunken lag in some Salvation Army Mission
It's such a shame

Oh, demon alcohol
Sad memories I can't recall
Who thought I would say
Damn it all
Blow it all
Oh demon alcohol
Memories I can't recall
Who thought I would fall a slave to demon alcohol

Barley wine, pink gin
He'll drink anything
Port, Pernod, or tequila
Rum, scotch, vodka on the rocks
As long as all the troubles disappear
He messed up his life when he beat up his wife
The floozy's gone and found another sucker
She'll turn him to the drink
She'll lead him to the brink
And when his money's gone she'll leave him in the gutter
It's such a shame

Oh demon alcohol
Sad memories I cannot recall
Who thought I would fall
A slave to demon alcohol.
