whine of love

I drank the wine of love
on a gorgeous summer’s night
perhaps I drank too deeply
’cause I got in a fight
this guy he said he knew you
and gave a saucy wink
so I hit him with the bottle
then had another drink

our love could cover oceans
and charm the birds and bees
the day that I first saw you
you brought me to my knees
I knew that I must have you
but you ignored my calls
until you smiled so gently
and grabbed me by the balls

the truth is though I love you
we’re not a perfect pair
I dance attendance on you
though you don’t seem to care
my life is yours to do with
exactly as you choose
but all I get is sorrow
and a crash course in the blues

        It was your “crash course in the blues” and their lyrics:

        Flip, flop and fly
        I don’t care if I die
        Flip, flop and fly
        I don’t care if I die
        Don’t ever leave me
        Don’t ever say goodbye

        πŸ˜€

        • Ah, I see, the song though is not consistent. In the last verse, for instance, he sings the line “I got so many women, I don’t know which way to jump” which is not a problem my protagonist, or indeed the singer of the chorus you quote, would have πŸ˜†

            AH!! Mystery solved! The Joe Turner version is different from The Blues Brother’s version!. In the BB version, “I got so many women, I don’t know which way to jump” has been replaced with:

            “I’m like a mississipi bullfrog sitting on a hollow stump
            I’m like a mississipi bullfrog sitting on a hollow stump
            I’ve got to work for this guy – I don’t know which way to run”

            Joe’s version:
            “I’m like a mississippi bullfrog, sittin’ on a hollow stump
            I’m like a mississippi bullfrog, sittin’ on a hollow stump
            I got so many women, I don’t know which way to jump”
