My Friend The Drink

This song is by Jack the Lad and appears on the album Rough Diamonds (1975).

Look at the rain falling from out of the sky
There's lots of umbrellas up to keep people dry
It's-a bothering me 'cause it's well after three
And booze keeps the tears from my eyes

Just give me some days drinking wine
Let me meet old friends of mine
We'll all remember the times
And then we'll be fine
Just give me your bottle of booze
So I don't go down with the blues
I have got no time to lose
To meet my friend the drink

I went away hoping that someday I'd find
Someone to replace you just to help me unwind
But the needless were fools and they're smoking at school
I still get the thirst for your kind

Sometimes in my dreams I get the feeling
I'm all right without you but I can't tell
From one place to another, my mind it gets smarter
When I find where I am, where I've gone may just fell

And now you are here with me just like before
And when you are empty I will open one more
'Cause when I get the taste of you, ooh the sweet taste of you
Ice sinking taste of you more evermore

Just give me some days drinking wine
Let me meet old friends of mine
We'll all remember the times
And then we'll be fine
Just give me some bottle of booze
So I don't go down with the blues
I have got no time to lose
To meet my friend the drink
Yes my old friend the drink
