FINE WINE, MOONSHINE AND A BOTTLE OF PERRIER®

Lyrics by Walter J. Wojtanik

Giggle if you feel the need
but as crazy as it seems,
anything is better
than sleeping through your dreams.
Every sense and sensation,
will cut you to the quick,
forget your frustration,
losing love can make you sick…

We should have been fine wine,
but we went down like moonshine,
and I promise that the next time
I’ll stick with a bottle of Perrier®.
It could have been the best time,
from the first to the last rhyme,
not just another fast time
with the one that got away.
I would’ve been, I could’ve been,
I should’ve been…here with you.

In spite of all the chattering,
things said were unflattering,
and even if it shatters me,
I’ll take my chance with you.

Better wake up and cut loose,
scoop up all the remnants that remain.
Everything is better
when you stay and play the game.
Lock down and load up,
and don’t cave in to life’s demands,
double down, don’t split up
you’ve been dealt the winning hand…

We could have been fine wine,
but we settled on moonshine,
and I promise that the next time
I’ll stick with a bottle of Perrier®.
It should have been the best time,
from the first to the last rhyme,
not just another fast time
with the one that got away.
I would’ve been, I could’ve been,
I should’ve been…here with you.

    1. I was in a musical mood, Irene. The “moonshine” screamed country and that’s how this plays in my head. As with all my lyrics (and they’re backing up) this will eventually be joined with its melody. Thanks for your continued support! 🙂

  1. I completely agree with the comment that The Real Cie has said here!! I too pictured the same whilst reading :)…..straight out of a Jack Sparrow movie!!

    1. Humbled by the “Impressive” tag. We are all entertainer in our way, David. Been a lyricist longer that a “poet”, even though I refer to my poems as non-musical lyrics. Thanks for checking in! 🙂
