"Alcohol" as written by and Ray Davies....
Here's the story of a sinner
He used to be a winner
Enjoying a life or prominence and position
But the pressures at the office
His social life engagements
His selfish wife's fanatical ambition

It turned him to the booze
He got mixed up with a floozy
She led him to a life of indecision
The floozy made him spend his dough
She left him laying on skid row
A drunken lag in self salvation
A remission

It's such a shame

Oh, Demon Alcohol!
Memories I cannot recall
Who thought I would say:
"Damn it all
And blow it all!"
Oh, Demon Alcohol!
Memories I cannot recall
Who though I would fall
A slave to Demon Alcohol

Barely Wine
Pink gin
He'll drink anything
Port
Bruno
Or tequila
Rum
Scotch
Vodka on the rocks
As long as all his troubles disappear
But he messed up his life when he beat up his wife
Now the floozy's gone and found another sucker
She's gonna turn him onto drink
She's going to lead him to the brink
And when his money's gone
She's gonna leave him in the gutter

It's such a shame

Oh, Demon Alcohol!
Memories I cannot recall
Who thought I would say:
"Damn it all
And blow it all!"
Oh, Demon Alcohol!
Memories I cannot recall
Who though I would fall
A slave to Demon Alcohol
