Make It Another Old-Fashioned, Please

by Cole Porter

Cole Albert Porter (June 9, 1891 – October 15, 1964) was an American composer and songwriter.

Since I went on the wagon, I'm certain drink is a major crime
For when you lay off the liquor, you feel so much slicker
Well that is, most of the time

Make it another, double, old-fashioned, please
Make it for one who's due to join the disillusion crew
Make it for one of love's new refugees

Once high in my castle, I ran to you
And oh what a castle, built on a heavenly dream
Then quick as a lightning flash, that castle began to crash
So, make it another old-fashioned, please

Leave out the cherry, 
Leave out the orange, 
Leave out the bitters
Just make it straight, right
