Red Red Wine

This song is something I’ve heard all through the early years of my life. It was such a hit song and was a favourite among many years after it was released in 1983. This song doesn’t have any concealed story or message. It’s as straightforward as they come. I’m dedicating this song to a BFF who relishes wine as much as I do. That being conveyed, neither of us are alcoholics! We’re not into reds, but unfortunately there’s no song titled ‘White White Wine’ πŸ˜‰

PS: Please ignore the inappropriate glass pairing. And just like all my music-inspired poems, I suggest playing the song{which I have embedded below for your convenience} in the background as you read; it truly elevates the experience!

There's something about a good wine
It tends to go back and erase time
Mistakes and people, it makes me forget
And I feel light and happy with no regrets

There's something about wine
From reality, makes you go blind
When your senses refuse to ignore
One by one, it shuts those overworked doors

All I can do, I've done
So now with wine, I've begun
And quite honestly, this is way more fun

Wine don't let me be alone
You have become my cornerstone
Please stay close to me
And don't let me be lonely

Oh sweet wine, you make me feel so fine
It's like taking an epidural up my spine
You keep me rocking all of the time
And now you have become my lifeline

Lyrics of Red Red Wine by UB40

Red, red wine goes to my head
Makes me forget that I still need her so
Red, red wine, it's up to you
All I can do I've done
Memories won't go, memories won't go
I'd have sworn that with time
Thoughts of you leave my head
I was wrong, now I find
Just one thing makes me forget
Red, red wine, stay close to me
Don't let me be alone
It's tearing apart my blue heart
I'd have sworn that with time
Thoughts of you leave my head
I was wrong, now I find
Just one thing makes me forget
Red, red wine, stay close to me
Don't let me be alone
It's tearing apart my blue heart
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
You keep me rockin' all of the time
Red red wine, you make me feel so grand
I feel a million dollar when you're just in my hand
Red red wine, you make me feel so sad
Any time I see you go, it make me feel bad
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
Monkey pack him Rizla pon the sweet Dep line
Red red wine, weh give me whole heap of zing
Whole heap of zing, make me do my own thing
Red red wine, you really know how fi love
Your kind of lovin' like a blessing from above
Red red wine, I loved you right from the start
Right from the start, and with all of my heart
Red red wine inna eighties style
Red red wine inna modern beat style
Yeah
Give me a likkle time, let me clear up mi mind
Give me a likkle time, let me clear up mi mind
Give me red wine, the kind make me feel fine
You make me feel fine all of the time
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
Monkey pack him Rizla pon the sweet Dep line
The line broke, the money get choked
Bun bad ganja pon him likkle rowing boat
Red red wine, I'm gonna hold on to you
Hold on to you 'cause I know yuh love truth
Red red wine, I'm gonna love you til' I die
Love you 'til I die, and that's no lie
Red red wine, can't get you out mi mind
Wherever you may be, I'll surely find
I'll surely find, make no fuss, just leave us
Give me a little time, let me clear out my mind
Give me a little time, let me clear out my mind
Give me red wine, the kind make me feel fine
You make me feel fine all of the time
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
Monkey back and ease up on the sweet deadline
The line broke, the money get choked
Bun bad ganja pon him likkle rowing boat
Red red wine, you really know how fi love
Your kind of lovin' like a blessing from above
Red red wine, I loved you right from the start
Right from the start, and with all of my heart
Red red wine, weh give me whole heap of zing
Whole heap of zing, make me do my own thing
Red red wine inna eighties style
Red red wine inna modern beat style
Yeah
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
You keep me rockin' all of the time
Red red wine, you make me feel so grand
I feel a million dollar when you're just in my hand
Red red wine, you make me feel so sad
Any time I see you go, it make me feel bad
The original UB40 song

  1. Ah So True Rue A Best FRiEnD Forever

    Is A True Wine That Warms Our

    Blood Yes Veins of Comfort

    Play That

    Only Stay

    And Care And Just
    Give More Wine as
    Graceful as Love Grows

    Older Stronger And Even More Real
    to Give And Share And SMiLes i am
    Wondering if that is You Singing That
    Song “Can’t Help Falling in Love” Or

    If it is Your FRiEnD

    Never the Less

    The Happiness of

    Your FRiEnDShip

    With That Special

    One Surely Radiates
    Through i Am Surely
    Happy For The Warmth You Two Are…
    Hehe And Nah.. No Alcohol At All For
    Me Not Even Any Caffeine One Only
    Dulls Heaven For me And the Other Shoots me

    Past The Stars As Coffee Beans Become Rocket

    Fuel Hehe Indeed And What More Could i
    Do With A Glass of Wine Dance Naked Nah

    Wouldn’t Need A Glass of Wine For That Either
    For i am Free Naked Wings Whole Complete Enough With SMiLes..:)
