32 is to young to drink with the devil The only thing holding her together Is 3 shades of Rimmel
It’s the benefit of benefit
It hides the bottles in her frown lines The wedding was beautiful
The groom dutiful
Now he swigs on stomach pump wine
Traffic lights change
But nothing ever passes by
She sits on a bench with a thirst to quench Whisky, Whisky’s what she cries
Her flat used to smell
Like a burnt out clutch
She broke the tags off the gin
She’s not allowed back in the Booze Bin Wore a hole in the bar
At the horse and cart
She wants her measures exact
She passes outback of the brewery tap
