The Lyrics

Did anyone ever think, while watching the movie "Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory" (which is still a classic in my opinion), that the Buckets' living situation was a little contrived? Perhaps a more realistic take is needed... (Mrs Bucket always looked like a secret alcoholic anyway)
Cheer up, Charlie,
Give me a shot,
What happened to that bottle of Merlot?
Don't you know that gin
Has always been my passion?
Let that passion flow...

Bums up, Charlie,
Gin isn't bad,
I drank a pint of this when I was four...
When I'd reached eleven
I could down a gallon
Then a gallon more...

Some day, sweet jaeger-bombs,
Brandy, and champagne will come along.
Till that day you’ve gotta drink what’s strong, Charlie;
Drunk on hops is not where you belong...

Look up Charlie,
The workhouse looms,
A life of working hard without the booze...
Pretty soon they're going to evict us, Charlie,
So drink up Charlie, do,
Drink up, Charlie,
Next we'll sniff some glue.

If you like this at all, feel free to check out my other alcohol-related parody of the song "The Candyman can" from the same film, titled "The Brandyman Can".
