Shun the Bottle.
of pain and
night and day, as you journey
on your way – shun the whiskey
bottle. Know you not that in each
one, hiddeneath the sparkling rum, lies a
deadly serpent there? Brother do not
drink, beware! Shun the whisky bottle.
In that bottle, too, there lies, guarded by
this serpent’s tongue, anguish, poverty
and crime. Heed the warning–turn
in time. Shun the whisky bottle.
Oh! the woe, the ruined lives of the
mothers andthe wives. Heed their
tears; ok, stop and think of the
misery caused by drink. Shun
the whisky bottle. Brother, if
you wish to find happiness
and peace of mind, wealth,
friends, all on which suc-
cess depends–shun the
whisky bottle. At last
when death is at your
door, if you would live for-
evermore, if you would gain celes-
tial prize and live with God beyond
the skies–shun the whisky bottle.
