Dancing the Wine Away
A glass of red wine, as red as a rose,
Will see me through this rainy summer's day,
A cup of your best poetry and prose,
And to your rhythmic rhyme I dance away.
Indulging in red wine feels so good,
It really brings out one's emotions,
It coaxes the spirits out of the woods,
It's really quite a potent potion.
It totally dissolves one's inhibitions,
Play the music, let the memories roll,
It's one of mankind's oldest traditions,
To drink and dance, and next day pay the toll.
But let's have fun and wine and song tonight,
And let's feast on ovine, bovine and swine,
Tonight we'll dance and hold each other tight,
Dancing and drinking with you is divine.
