From the Bottom to the Top

(Pat Robinson, Victor Keith Phillips)



CHORUS #1
From the bottom to the top
The beginning of the end
When the bottle on the table is your only friend

From the bottom to the top
And back down again
It's the bottom of the bottle that'll take you in the end

Now at the top of the bottle, there's a man of good taste
Entertaining his friends, with a smile on his face
And his friends are his treasure, they treasure him too
Just one big happy family with so much to lose

But halfway through the bottle, oh how people change
From lovers of family to players of games
And the games aren't all friendly, no need to pretend
Cause the bottle comes between even the closest of friends

CHORUS #1

Now the bottle's getting empty, and the lights are growing dim
So is the wit and so are the friends
And tomorrow won't come easy when the sun hits your eyes
Cause the bottle only lifts you, just to cut you down to size

CHORUS #2
From the bottom to the top
The beginning of the end
When the bottle on the table is your only friend

From the bottom to the top
And back down again
It's the bottom of the bottle it's the bottom of the bottle
It's the bottom of the bottle
That'll take you in the end
