"Wine in the Afternoon" as written by Robert Hardy, Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy and Paul Robert Thompson....
So this is summer
And the Calor gas is running low
But I don't mind
I'm doing things and doing them with you

Well you know he's gonna
want his rent tonight
But we'll have to tell him
Haddows swallowed all the rent this month

So summer stains
a sky with inky swirls
that bring the thunder low
But I don't mind,
I'm doing things and doing them with you

And if you're smart you'll put that book back down
You'll drag me to the floor,
drag me down for more

Drinking wine
Drinking wine in the afternoon
Doot doot n doo
Drinking wine
Drinking wine in the afternoon
Doot doot n doo

Tomorrow's Thursday
That's my day of work
That's my day of walking up the
Maryhill road making up
Some lie about some job applied for

When I've been drinking wine
Oh I've been drinking wine in the afternoon
Doot doot n doo

Fifty regal filters left their filthy butts behind
Left their blackened heads down in the ashes
That's the last before
They're pulled apart and placed within the papers
for a drag
A fag deserves a second life
Deserves a second life
Don't we all
Don't we all
Don't we all
Don't we all

Love drinking wine
Love drinking wine in the afternoon
Love drinking wine
Love drinking wine in the afternoon

Bottle of wine, bottle of wine...

    General Commentthis song fucking owns.

    It's so pretty. And really old-y - you could convince yourself it was made about 40 years ago or so...weird. wonderful though

    General CommentThe sillyness of the doo doo part is so great. What a great song sung by a great voice. I have 'Eleanor...' & 'You Could Have It...' and this song definitely sounds different from others, but variety is the spice of life. All songs SHOULD be different, for crissake.

    General CommentThe best song by this band. All about skipping out on responsibility & having fun. What's Haddows, a brand of wine?

    General CommentBest song from Franz in my opinion, next to The Fallen, Walk Away, This Fire...and actually, nevermind, I love all of Franz's songs. =P
