Well, I'm sittin' here, a glass so near
Filled with my one concern
Oh bottle, you've done lead me to
The point of no return

You took away my happy days
My life's a total wreck
You took the only things I love
So bottle, take effect

Take effect and take away
These blues that drive me wild
Take effect, make me forget
These troubles for a while

Then just lead me to those lights of blue
On the corner of regret
In some bar room
I'll lose my gloom
So bottle, take effect

You've took away my fortune
While I drank away my pride
Humiliation's my misfortune
And there's no place left to hide

The best place is the gutter
There I won't need respect
'Cause when in Rome
You'll do as the Romans do
Oh bottle, take effect

Take effect and take away
All these blues that drive me wild
Please take effect, make me forget
My troubles for a while
Then just lead me to

All those lights of blue
On the corner of regret
In some bar room
I'll lose my gloom
Oh bottle, take effect
