Lyrics

I send this note to formally acknowledge your advance
But you're in competition with another for my romance
I appreciate the apples that you drop off on your way
I make them into cider and I drink during the day

But when the sun goes down I drink to drown
She affects me more than you I've found
I'm not sayin' you're ugly, girl, you know you're fine

But you're like Martinelli's and she's like wine

The sparkle in your eye recalls the sparkle in that glass
Grandma never let me drink the stuff that packed a blast
Quiver when my girl smiles and runs her hands through my cowlick
She's a shot of vodka and you're non-alcoholic

And I'm not sayin' you need to pout
(I'm not sayin' you need to pout)
I just don't think that we're gonna work out
(Just don't think that we're gonna work out)
When you saw us kiss true you know my heart sunk

You can make me happy but she gets me drunk

When the sun goes down I drink to drown
And I'm not sayin' you need to pout
She affects me more than you I've found
I just don't think that we're gonna work out

I'm sorry as I type this because your types just aren't mine

Because you're like Martinelli's and she's like wine
