Spill the Wine

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

War (the band) from 1970.

I don't drink very often - I'm usually the designated driver when I go out with folks.


I was once out strolling one very hot summer's day
When I thought I'd lay myself down to rest in a big field of tall grass.
I lay there in the sun and felt it caressing my face.
As I fell asleep and dreamed,
I dreamed I was in a Hollywood movie,
And that I was the star of the movie.
This really blew my mind,
The fact that me, an overfed, long-haired, leaping gnome,
Should be the star of a Hollywood movie...Hmm
But there I was...Mmm


I was taken to a place, the hall of the mountain kings.
I stood high upon a mountain top, naked to the world,
In front of every kind of girl...
There was long ones, tall ones, short ones,
Brown ones, black ones, round ones, big ones, crazy ones...
Out of the middle, came a lady,
She whispered in my ear something crazy,
She said...



CHORUS:
"Spill the wine and take that girl,
Spill the wine and take that pearl,
Spill the wine and take that girl,
Spill the wine and take that pearl,"


I thought to myself,
"What could that mean?
Am I going crazy...
or is this just a dream?
Now wait a minute; I know I'm lying in a field of grass somewhere,
so it's all in my head."
And then...
I heard her say one more time...


(CHORUS)

I could feel hot flames of fire roaring at my back
As she disappeared, but soon she returned.
In her hand was a bottle of wine, in the other, a glass.
She poured some of the wine from the bottle into the glass,
And raised it to her lips,
And just before she drank it, she said...



"Take the wine and take that girl,
Spill the wine and take that girl,
Spill the wine and take that girl,
Spill the wine and take that girl."



"Take that girl...Yeah!
It's all yours; you gotta do it.
Spill that wine.
Spill that wine..."
