The Lyrics

I love to get high on rye--blind-drunk,
Till of everything I see two.
But my oxymoronic mind's sunk
In optic allusions askew.

Bars are open tonight,
Let's go in and get ploughed, get real tight.
But I'll have only ryes with you. Beer's
Proof isn't too high,
And wine just can't stand up to redeye,
So I'll have only ryes with you.

I say we blow off this beer garden
With its cloudy unfiltered brew.
So here's mud in your eye
Let's start swillin'; my whistle's bone-dry. . .
Bums, dipsomaniacs, we two.
But I'll only have ryes with you.
