Well the whiskey makes you sweeter than you are.
If I'd quit drinkin' sooner,
I'm sure I wouldn't have gone that far.
Now the haze has lifted, I can see,
That the whiskey makes you sweeter
Than you could ever really be.

I started slow and steady, I went from cola to a beer.
I made a resolution, from the liquor I'd steer clear.
When I saw you there,
Something inside of me switched on,
When I switched to the whiskey,
Then I knew that I was gone
Cos....(chorus then instrumental break)
Sweets for a sweet heart, that is what you said to me,
As you handed me a shot glass and I drank down
I was lost in dreams of sweet things,
Running through my head,
If it wasn't for the whiskey,
I'd have run away instead.
Oh yest the whiskey makes you sweeter,
Than you could ever be to me.
