The Lyrics

From drinkboy.com: "Lillet is a French aperitif wine produced in Bordeaux, and comes in either red or white (although the white version is the more common). It is fortified with Armagnac, herbs, fruit, and Bordeaux wine." It's known as "aromatized" wine. Pronounced li-LEH, I believe, but like "millet" here, for rhyming reasons.
I woke up hungover this morning,
And I was feeling bad.
I was a sickly and a reeking sight.
How much booze had I had?

Was it rum that I'd drunk or some Dutch gin?
Had I sampled them all?
The lights went out and I had only
Into my bed to crawl.

Pitchers of Lillet got me tight;
I'd drunk my fill.
Pitchers of Lillet made me sleep last night.
Pitchers of Lillet salved my riled-spouse problem.
Pitchers of Lillet. . .hellish morning light!

Pitchers of Lillet,
Lillet, oh Lillet,
Swill it; don't spill it!
Pitcher of Lillet.

I should stay off aromatized wine,
Although I do love Lillet.
It is laced with herbs after it is fined
I sip some first, then swill it.

At Club Bev a fifth's $19.29--
That price is about right.
Go to that store when it is Lillet time
They greet me there on sight.

Pitchers of Lillet make my wife
With thunder full.
Pitches my billet*--throws me out tonight.

Foamy, my Lillet issues from me in a stream.
I tell the guy in blue whose shoe I've hit that I will clean
Pissings of Lillet.

JB, my knowledge of wine doesn't go much beyond knowing that if it goes in a cardboard box instead of a glass bottle it's probably not all that good. But this parody seems to be of a rather good vintage...5 tasting sips - HEY!! Why are you spitting that out? I paid $2.99 for that half gallon, man!

Thanks, Paul, Alvin--I used to think the Beatles were my favorite band, but I've been listening and relistening to "Tommy" and the "Maximum" box set, and I think I'm having a change of affection.
