Vodka and Cordial

This song was created for Game of Bands round 103 : "Under the Influence"

Lyrics:


VODKA AND CORDIAL

V1: It was the summer I turned sixteen  
My first big party, I was nervous and keen 
I couldn’t resist the red cup's siren song 
That was when it all started to go wrong 

‘Vodka and cordial’ you said with a smile 
I couldn’t taste the vodka but after a while 
The room went all fuzzy and I wanted to dance 
I took on the challenge and took a chance

CHORUS: 
Vodka and cordial, music and lights 
I want to be one of the cool kids tonight 
Vodka and cordial, music and lights 
I want to be one of the cool kids tonight 

V2: The party was raging, the room was blurred 
‘How much vodka is there in this?’ I slurred 
You smirked at your friend and refilled my cup 
I didn’t even realise that something was up 

I’d never really had alcohol before 
But people were laughing and dancing and more 
Swept up in the music I just couldn’t see 
That most of the people were laughing at me 

CHORUS: 
Vodka and cordial, music and lights 
I want to be one of the cool kids tonight 
Vodka and cordial, music and lights 
I want to be one of the cool kids tonight 

V3 (or bridge): 
At last the party begins to wind down 
I’m sloppy and messy and acting like a clown 
At last you admit that the game is up: 
‘There wasn’t any vodka in that cup!’ 

I couldn’t believe that I’d been so fooled 
The entire room knew and I was ridiculed 
I couldn’t resist the red cup’s siren song 
But I was under your influence all along 

CHORUS: 
Vodka and cordial, music and lights 
I want to be one of the cool kids tonight 
Vodka and cordial, music and lights 
I want to be, want to be, want to be...
