Story Behind The Song

People who drink wine justify it with a lot of ceremony. It's more high brow to drink a really nice wine than it is to drink out of a bottle in a paper bag. But, a lot of people who are drinking wine are really just Winos anyway.

You say it?s healthy, you tell me it?s chic.
You only drink it at the end of the week.

You?re a WINO, W-I-N-O
That?s how it goes.
You?re a WINO, W-I-N-O

You sniff it & swirl it, you turn up your nose.
You sip it & strut around in your designer clothes.

You?re a WINO, W-I-N-O
That?s how it goes
You?re a WINO, W-I-N-O

You judge the color; inhale the bouquet.
You appreciate it because it?s a fine cabernet.

You?re a WINO, W-I-N-O
That?s how it goes.
You?re a WINO, W-I-N-O.
You?re a WINO, W-I-N-O.
You?re a WINO, W-I-N-O.
