Put a nickel in the jukebox and let it play,
For my heart is cold with its pain.
Take the cork from the bottle of The Warm Red Wine,
And fill my glass up again.
Fill my glass up to the brim
Till it flows over the rim
Like the tears flow in this heart of mine
While I say so long to the dreams that are gone
On account of The Warm Red Wine
Oh, the prison of stone with its cold iron bars is no more a prison than mine.
I am a prisoner of drink, who will never escape
From the chains of The Warm Red Wine
Oh, the wine is red, so warm and red
Like a ruby it sparkles and gleams.
But I paid for the wine.
The Warm Red Wine,
With all my hopes and dreams.
