Lyrics

Bad liquor, bad liquor
Who took the good out of the bottle
Salt water, salt water
Scattered across the ocean floor

The moon, that moon
It's the saddest bugger of them all
Bad liquor, bad liquor
At the bottom of Niagara Falls

Bad liquor, bad liquor
It's pulling my strings tonight
Salt water, salt water
There's nothing that I do right

And all you people, you people
You're the luckiest people of all
Bad liquor, bad liquor
At the bottom of Niagara Falls

Bad liquor, bad liquor
It's pulling my strings tonight
Salt water, salt water
There's nothing that I do right
