Like not a few men, I have a faithful love that I have never once betrayed; and I know that, for her part, she shall never leave my side.
Start the day with whiskey!
My one, my truest friend
The Queen of all great paramours
The love that never ends!
Admire her every facet
She pours down milk and wine
Embrace her rosy lips
And lithesome, murmur ‘Thou art mine!’
Whiskey is your truest love
She’s always there at need
She never fails to ease your pain
A friend at dawn, a friend indeed!
Be it noisome morning glories
Or fears about your labour
Whiskey has sworn by her own great name
To always be there t’ savour
There is no torment, trial or fear
Your love cannot dispel
Eh bien! Après moi la deluge!…
Today must be our heaven
Let tomorrow take heed of hell!
