A Friend Of Mine

Some like you for your color
Dark or light, red or white

Some like you for your flavor
Currant, caramel, cherry, plum

Some like you for your bouquet
Flowery, fruity, oaky, smoky

Some drink you to remember
A wedding, a birthday, an anniversary

Some drink you to forget
A heartbreak, a great loss, a catastrophe

Some drink you helplessly
Because you’re a hard habit to break

Some drink you snobbishly
How else would they enjoy their steak?

I drink you, o bottle of wine
Because you put me on cloud number nine

I drink you, o bottle of wine
Because you are now a friend of mine
