      I

If you live in a house of glass

           IV

You oughta not throw rocks

 

It ain't enough to flap your gums

                                      V7

You gotta walk the walk

              I

From the opposition benches

               IV                    I

Gordo flung a lotta mud

 

But now he's been arrested

                             V7                      I

With too much liquor in his blood

 

I

        IV

He drank too much gin

                                                 I

And he drank too much wine

 

Zero Point One Four Per Cent

                                 VIm

The law calls it a crime

         I

Mr. Zero Three Dash Zero Two

It was on a tropic island

It was in the year of three

That Premier Gordon Campbell

Had a well-deserved spree

He was plumb tuckercd out

From inflicting all the cuts

But he took himself a tumble

And he landed on his butt

Zero Three Dash Zero Two

Six Five Nine

He drank too much gin

And he drank too much wine

He, was over at his buddy's place

To have some drinks and dine

Mr. Zero Three Dash Zero Two

Six Five Nine

 

Gord was staying at a place

Just ten miles down the road

When he got behind the wheel

He was toting quite a load

He thought he'd be fine

He'd been fine in the past

But the police pulled him over

Because he was driving fast

Zero Three Dash Zero Two

Six Five Nine

He drank too much gin

And he drank too much wine

Step out of the car, please, sir

And try to walk the line

Mr. Zero Three Dash Zero Two

Six Five Nine

 

They took him to the slammer

And they took his photograph

Gordo didn't know whether

To cry- or to laugh

The number that they gave him

When he held the little sign

Was Zero Three Dash Zero Two

Six Five Nine

Zero Three Dash Zero Two

Six Five Nine

He drank too much gin

And he drank too much wine

The more he thought about it

The more he felt like cryin'

Mr. Zero Three Dash Zero Two

Six Five Nine

 

You and me are drinkers too

We know that drink's a curse

We done as bad as Gordo done

And maybe we done worse

We never claimed to be no saint

But Gordo did, you see

He oughta take the medicine

He'd prescribe for you and me

Zero Three Dash Zero Two

Six Five Nine

He drank too much gin

And he drank too much wine

It's time for him to pull the plug

It's time that he resigned

Mr. Zero Three Dash Zero Two

Six Five Nine
