DT Lyrics:



Subject: Lyr Add: DRINK TO ME ONLY WITH GOOD HARD CIDER
From: Haruo

Having just posted the Esperanto version of "Drink to me only with thine eyes" (I'm still working on the MIDI) in La Lilandejo, I thought I would check the DT for the end-of-Prohibition parody, but it doesn't come up. My recollection is it goes something like
Drink to me only with good hard cider,
Or gin, or a scotch highball,
Brandy or wine, or any old thing
Just as long as it's alcohol,
For now that the Wets have won the day,
And Prohibition is through-oo
To drink to me only with thine eyes
Is a hell of a thing to do!

I suppose this should really be Lyric Add, not Req (when I created it I didn't realize I remembered the whole thing) - or are there more verses?

And the parody was in Song Fest (IOCA, Beth & Dick Best):

    Drink to me only with good hard cider
    Or rye, or a scotch highball
    Drink to me with any old thing
    As long as it's alcohol
    For now that the wets have won the day
    And prohibition is through
    To drink to me only with thine eyes
    Is a hell of a thing to do.
