Under the influence
Life's pain goes away
Despite my appearance
I'm not easy to sway
Love is a temperance, but
I'm reluctant to say
I'm under your influence
It's here to stay

Under the influence
Of your magnificence
Let's stop the pretense and
Oh! Get some common sense!
Under the influence
Under the influence

Under the influence
To have and to hold
Takes on new significance
When you start to grow old
All of the evidence, is
Or so I've been told
I'm under your influence
My soul is sold
