What else did you expect?
Marching along, white elephant in tow.
We had to arrive sometime.
Even if we’re early, we have time for a drink.
Of course you can drink now,
We’re growing, through this, with it.

Unless you’re having second thoughts.
I’d pull out every phrase in your mind
And assemble them for you.
But I want to know what you feel.
Yes, credit is good here.
But you’ve got to tell me more than that.
Tip a penny for your—goddamnit. 
I’m having another drink.
