Spill the Wine
I was once out strolling
One hot summer 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 I
Felt it caressin' my face

As I fell asleep
I dreamed that I was in a Hollywood movie
And that I was the star
Of the movie

This really blew my mind
But there I was
Oh yeah I was
I was taken to the place
The hall of the mountain king

I stood high upon the mountaintop
Naked to the world
In front of me
Was every kind of girl

There was long ones, tall ones
Short ones, brown ones
Black ones, round ones
Big crazy ones

Out of the middle
Came a lady
She whispered in my ear
Somethin' crazy

Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl

I thought to myself
What could this mean?
Am I going crazy
Or is it just a dream?

Now wait a minute

I know I'm lying
In a field of grass somewhere
It was all in my head
But then I heard
Somebody say

Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl

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
And in the other, a glass
Good god

She poured some of that wine
From the bottle into the glass
And she raised it to her lip
And before she drank it, she said

Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl

Spill, spill, spill that wine
Come on, take that pearl
Come on and spill that wine
Come on and take that pearl

Spill that wine!

Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl

Spill, spill, spill
Spill, spill, spill that wine
Come on and spill that wine
Come on, take that pearl
Come on and spill that wine

Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl

Come on and spill that wine
Take that pearl
Come on spill that wine
Take that pearl

Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl
Spill the wine; take that pearl

Come on and spill it
Come on and spill it
