The old man in building A
Drinks Fernet once a day
And his mate in unit 8
Sips chartreuse to get loose
The old lady in building B
Smokes Gauloises on the balcony
And the guy in unit 5
drinks Cointreau to feel alive
The couple seen in building G
Pours Dauphin in golden streams
The raconteur in unit 4
Spilled Pernod on the floor
And the dude in unit 2
Smokes Vogues in the nude.
