The Alcoholic #2


He's drinking on a dry summer's day,

The stale urine stinks all day.

And for days he stumbles through the steel rain,

And the doorknobs bouncing and spinning

In the electric city,

Where the fog breeds 

Across the harbour,

Where a blind man coughs at the wharf.

He's drinking in the tunnel

In the morning before the sun gets thirsty,

He's drinking away the shakes

And the D T's,

And thinking with a soaked brain

About the symptons of alcoholism,

And he's drinking till he's pissed

And singing with Lillian Roth and the A A choir,

" I'll Cry Tomorrow "

Beneath the falling stars.
