WINE, WOMEN AND LOUD HAPPY SONGS (Larry Kingston) Ringo Starr - 1970 Look at me now, ain't I a sight Eyes bloody red, face puffy white Hair tangled up and wrinkled old clothes I'm a livin' example of a big overdose of Wine, women and loud happy songs I've had all three, but none lasted long The women ran off, I drank all the wine And the songs died away when I ran out of dimes (Instrumental Break) It's strange how the wine works on a fool It seeps through his mind, leaves him glued to the stool Women leave you wishing you'd just never been But the songs make you happy, soon you're searchin' again For wine, women and loud happy songs I've had all three, but none lasted long The women ran off, I drank all the wine And the songs died away when I ran out of dimes (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
