Down Among The Wine And Spirits

Down Among the Wines and Spirits

A Former-Champion Prize fighter Discovers His
Name Printed Just Above The Liquor Licensee

Down among the wines and spirits
Where a man gets what he merits&
Once it was written in letters  bout nine feet tall
Now he sees how far he s fallen
Since he set his mind on her completely
But then I guess that you couldn t have seen him lately
Walking around with a pain that just never ceases
He starts to speak and then he goes to pieces&
Down among the wines and spirits
Where a man gets what he merits&
Lives with the echoing words of their final quarrel
The vacant chamber
The empty barrel
But as he picks himself up from a sawdust floor
Clicks his fingers to that swinging door
Suddenly he s calling out,  More, more, more& 
 I mtwice the foolish man I was before& 
Down among the wines and spirits
Bubbles escaping from him at the rim a glass of grape
She sails through his memory just like a ship of shapely
And then as it started sink he drowns his sorrows
That fill his nights and empty tomorrows
But as he picks himself up from a sawdust floor
Clicks his fingers to that swinging door
Suddenly he s calling out,  More, more, more& 
Speaks of invisible things he hardly credits
Down among
Down among the wines and spirits
