lyrics

Pour some quinine in my gin or mix me up a Mickey Finn,
No damn mosquito’s gonna get the best of me.
Shake it up with filtered ice, and pour it for me clean and nice, with just the tiniest splash of DDT.


Quinine it keeps me alive
DDT will kill those fuckers where they fly
But everywhere I go, some bastard wants to know
“Hey, what’s the gin for?” and I don’t know why.


The other day I took a whiff, and what did I find in my sniff?
Quinine come to get me sly and stealth.
So next time that I buy a sack, I’ll pat my dealer on the back,
Cause that guy always looks out for my health.


Quinine it keeps me alive
Had the cocaine blues, they kept me up till 5.
But everywhere I go, some bastard wants to know
“Hey, what’s the gin for?” and I don’t know why.


Well I drink for my health,
And I toast to your wealth,
And I feel so goddamn vital I could die!


But do one thing for me, brother
And don’t be like the others
Asking “what’s the gin for?” and I don’t know why


Quinine it keeps me alive
But gin gives me a reason to survive.
But everywhere I go, some bastard wants to know
“Hey, what’s the gin for?” and I don’t know why.
