IF I WERE A BOTTLE

If I were a bottle of tequila
Would you love me then
Would you dance with me through the town
‘Til the moon’s untimely end

If I were a bottle of red wine
Would you want me every night
Would you rush on home to see me
In the glow of firelight

Would you lie atop a hill
Staring at the sky
Would your fingers trace my neck
As stars came sailing by

If I were a silver flask of whiskey
Would you keep me close to your chest
Would your lips hover so near
I’d always feel your warm breath

If I were a shot glass of bourbon
Would you feel mellow and kind
Or would you hold on so tight
Afraid love would unwind

Would you lie atop a hill
Staring at the sky
Would your fingers trace my neck
As stars came sailing by

If I were a bottle of tequila
Would you love me then
