Gin.... Apparently!

He’s turned up today with a new song. Transpires someone was talking to him about the place of satirical art throughout history and William Hogarth was mentioned.
His immediate reaction? Write a song about gin!
He also turned up with "some inspiration" as seen in the photo. Apparently it's supposed to be drunk out of a teacup.
The man’s an idiot.

Here’s To Gin (The Gin Song)

There's a drink that I'm loving


A fine cup of something


It's bitter and sweet and it's clear


It's a friend and a lover


A fool and a bugger


Drink it straight or deliciously queer It'll ruin your mother


And mess up your brother


This spirit unites young and old


Take care when you drink it

Sip, glug or sink it


The damage it's done is untold

The damage it's done is untold

Here's to Gin (Gin!) and the trouble she brings


The gateway to all of the best sinful things


She'll liven the night
If the comp'ny's alright


You'll be dancing whilst everyone sings


Here's to Gin (Gin!) and the trouble she brings


To paupers, whores, thieves and kings


She'll go down so slick


She'll be back up as quick


You'll be dancing whilst everyone sings


(Dancing whilst everyone sings)

You can drink it at home


Whilst you're sitting alone


You can drink it with friends at the "Cocks"


You can down a whole jar


With old men from afar


At the salty end down on the docks Whether Bombay or Gordons


Or Tankeray, Warners


Or boiled in your very own still


Drink it neat or with tonic


The next day is chronic


When you're feeling unbearably ill


(You'll be feeling unbearably ill)

Here's to Gin (Gin!) and the trouble she brings

The gateway to all of the best sinful things


She'll liven the night
If the comp'ny's alright


You'll be dancing whilst everyone sings


Here's to Gin (Gin!) and the trouble she brings


To paupers, whores and thieves and kings


She'll go down so slick


She'll be back up as quick


You'll be dancing whilst everyone sings


(Dancing whilst everyone sings)
