Wonderful Tonight

It's late in the evening; and I'm wondering what to drink
I open my bar now and I search for the familiar stink
And then he asks me, "Am I the one for the night?"
And I say, "Yes, you'll be just perfect tonight."

We go to a party and everyone turns to see
This fat old man that's walking around with me.
And then they ask me, "Do you feel all right?"
And I say, "Yes, this feels wonderful tonight."

I feel wonderful because I see
The buzz shine in your eyes.
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize (how much I love you.)

It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head,
So I give him the car keys and he helps me to bed.
And then I tell him, as I turn out the light,
I say, "My darling, you were wonderful tonight.
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight."

"I had eighteen bottles of Ole monk in my cellar and was told by my wife to empty the contents of each and every bottle down the sink, or else... I said I would and proceeded with the unpleasant task. I withdrew the cork from the first bottle and poured the contents down the sink with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I then withdrew the cork from the second bottle and did likewise with it, with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I then withdrew the cork from the third bottle and poured the rum down the sink which I drank. I pulled the cork from the fourth bottle down the sink and poured the bottle down the glass, which I drank. I pulled the bottle from the cork of the next and drank one sink out of it, and threw the rest down the glass. I pulled the sink out of the next glass and poured the cork down the bottle. Then I corked the sink with the glass, bottled the drink and drank the pour. When I had everything emptied, I steadied the house with one hand, counted the glasses, corks, bottles, and sinks with the other, which were twenty-nine, and as the houses came by I counted them again, and finally I had all the houses in one bottle, which I drank. I'm not under tha affluence of incohol as some tinkle peep I am. I'm not half as thunk as you might drink. I fool so feelish I don't know who is me, and the drunker I stand here, the longer I get."


for the good times !!!!
