A Drink With Something In It

There is something about a Martini,
A tingle remarkably pleasant,
A yellow, a mellow Martini,
I wish I had one at present.
There is something about a Martini,
Ere the dining and dancing begin,
And to tell you the truth,
It is not the vermouth,
I think that perhaps it’s the gin.

“A Drink With Something In It”, by Ogden Nash
