Martini

Six parts gin
One part Vermouth
Shake it on ice
For a second or two
Strain it slowly
Into a glass
Laced with lemon

It’s a simple drink
This I know
I’m a simple man
Yea I’m your average joe
But just one sip
Sends my soul
To heaven

When I was young
Just a boy
I ate my cereal
Just for the toy
Not much has changed
But my new treat
Is the olive
Way down at the bottom
Of my favorite drink

It’s good in the summer
It’s good in the fall
It’s good in the morning
Or any time at all
Man of woman
Big or small
It don’t matter

Maybe you drink beer
Maybe you drink wine
I ain’t one to judge
But I’m not lying
I’ve tried em’ all
And this drink
Is of the highest stature

When I was young
Just a boy
I ate my cereal
Just for the toy
Not much has changed
But my new treat
Is the olive
Way down at the bottom
Of my favorite drink
