Cointreau and candlelight

Cointreau and candlelight.
A girl, a boy and all is right.
Just two glasses, bottle each,
Ecstasy is just in reach.

Candlelight and good strong booze.
Nothing in the world to lose.
A boy, a girl, the night ahead.
Where have these things always lead.

Two sore heads and morning light.
Still the world is oh so right.
Empty bottles, candle burned,
Smiling faces, both well earned!
