WINE, WOMEN AND SONG
 
div
 
I'm a sport, I'm a nut, I'm a blood,
And Jane thinks I'm fearfully fast,
I'm a bit of alright, and I'm out for the night
And I'll stay out till ten or half-past
There's something that's wild in my blood
Some three-bottle ancestor's strain
Believe me or doubt me, deceive me or flout me
I'll still come up smiling again
so sing hip-hur-ray.

Chorus: Wine, woman, and song,
They're the three things that send a man, wrong,
I'll rollick and revel, and go to the devil
So let the mad nights roll along
Wine, woman and song,
I don't think much song, though', for mine
No, if I've got my choice
As I haven't much voice
P'r'aps we'd better say Woman and wine.


I must say if truth were confessed,
I've never touched wine till tonight,
Do you think something red would go into my head?
Graves, or bones - that sound merry and bright
No, I think something sparkling is best
Expense doesn't matter a damn
You'll soon see me busy with something that's fizzy
A bumper of bubbling cham
so sing hip-hur-ray.

Chorus: Wine, woman, and song,
They're the three things that send a man wrong,
I'll rollick and revel, and go to the devil
So let the mad nights roll along
Wine, woman and song,
I didn't think wine was so dear
Three-and-six the 'half bot'
No I rather think not
P'r'aps we'd better say Woman and beer.


Lovely woman, of course, I adore,
The hearts and the hands I have won,
I'm a sort of Don Juan and Lo-tha-ri-o too
Rolled together and put into one
But tonight though' I've tried hard, I'm sure
I don't seem to get on so well
I tried on the ballet, they weren't a bit 'pally'
They told me I might go to - still
Let's sing hip-hur-ray.

Chorus: Wine, woman, and song,
They're the three things that send a man wrong,
I'll rollick and revel, and go to the devil
So let the mad nights roll along
Wine, woman and song,
Well, I don't want to cause any strife
Girls get jealous, you know
And I'm married and so
P'r'aps we'd better say beer and the wife!
