We'll Never Touch The Wine Lyrics

Lyrics by Maria Straub 
Music by S.W. Straub 
Temperance Movement (1904)

We are a little temp'ranee band, 
And this our pledge secure: 
We'll never, never touch the wine; 
We'll drink the water pure.

Drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink. 
We'll drink cold water pure, 
We'll never, never touch the wine; 
We'll drink the water pure.

We'll join the army of the land, 
The tried, the true, the brave, 
Who nobly strive from alcohol, 
Our friends and homes to save.

Drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink. 
We'll drink cold water pure, 
We'll never, never touch the wine; 
We'll drink the water pure.

If faithful in our temp'rance band, 
The little we can do. 
May help some other feeble one, 
To keep a purpose true.

Drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink. 
We'll drink cold water pure, 
We'll never, never touch the wine; 
We'll drink the water pure.

Come, join our little temp'rance band, 
The erring help to win; 
Unite with us in the chorus grand, 
This little song to sing.

Drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink, drink. 
We'll drink cold water pure, 
We'll never, never touch the wine; 
We'll drink the water pure.
