Roxy Especial: Music

The Drink Song

(Roxy Especial)
Music and lyrics by Roxy and Jamieson Trotter, and Sabrina SosaDeBrer

For a long time I've wanted I've wanted to write a song that celebrates the alcoholic beverage. Hell, I wanted to write an old-fashioned drinking song! I wanted it to be tongue-in-cheek, dysfunctionally celebratory, with a touch of Mariachi/Latin flavor. Make sure you listen to the entire end of the song...after you think it's over you can hear the group vocal (without any music) that was recorded live at one of my Cinco de Mayo shows - it was so fun to do!

When trouble knocks at my door When the lightening strikes and the thunder roars I know what I must do, what works for me and you…. Give me drinks Give me gin, give me vodka Give me some wine Bourbon will fill every need every time You’ll be my barkeep, and you’ll keep me fine People say it’s wrong and it won’t last long But, if you pour it tall right at the last call I can sip it slow And put it in a cup to go Give me drinks Give me gin, give me vodka Give me some wine Bourbon will fill every need every time You’ll be my barkeep, and you’ll keep me fine Put your troubles on ice, and they’ll taste nice Manana we might pay, but it’s so far away We won’t over-think it, we’ll tip one back and drink it Give me drinks Give me gin, give me vodka Give me some wine Bourbon will fill every need every time You’ll be my barkeep, and you’ll keep me fine My moonshine My moonshine And don't forget my tequila!!! Give me drinks Give me gin, give me vodka Give me some wine Bourbon will fill every need every time You’ll be my barkeep, and you’ll keep me fine Reprise: Give me drinks Give me gin, give me vodka Give me some wine Bourbon will fill every need every time You’ll be my barkeep, and you’ll keep me fine
