Love Is Like A Bottle Of Gin is in the unusual time signature of 21/8, which gives a lilting emphasis to each line. Having established a rhythm through the metre and repetition in each line ('It does this... / It does that...'), the song breaks the rhythm in the last line with the let-down, 'A bottle of gin is not like love'.
