"The Wine Song" as written by and Henry James Angus....
Songs and melodies change and change and sway
but they still stay the same
The songs that we sung when the dark days come
are the songs that we sung when we chased them away

If I ever found a pot of gold
I'd buy bottles untold of the nectar of the vines
'Cause I'm going to die with a twinkle in my eye
'cause I sung songs, spun stories,
loved, laughed and drank wine

Tomorrow is another day
The cats are out to play, to play
That old rusty spaceship wants to sail
into the Milky Way again
on a river of red, red wine

Run run run run run run run run run run run
Let's have some
fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun
we'll
drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink
a toast to the
Sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun...

Run run run run run run run run run run run
Let's have some
fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun
we'll
drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink
a toast to the
Sun, sun, sun

In summer the bushfires rage and rage and rage
on such beautiful days
And we fight them with water that runs through the cracks
Water we're desperately trying to save
So I'll just live on wine and water my vines
and sleep on the wind with the fires right behind
and sing on the beaches and swim through the night
Oh we'll cry 'pass the wine, pass the wine, pass the wine'

Tomorrow is another day
The cats are out to play, to play
That old rusty spaceship wants to sail
into the Milky Way again
on a river of red, red wine

Run run run run run run run run run run run
Let's have some
fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun
we'll
drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink
a toast to the
Sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun...

Run run run run run run run run run run run
Let's have some
fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun
we'll
drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink drink
a toast to the
Sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun sun

Oh what a beautiful day today!
Today's a day to celebrate
Grab your bucket, grab your spade
we're heading down to Half Moon Bay
I saw a plane go into a cloud
I'm drunk, I'm singing, I'm happy and loud
Two o'clock in the arvo, but hey that's allowed
I'm having a good time and of that I am proud

    General CommentThe Wine Song is one of my all time favourites. I just love Harry's charisma. My favourite lyric is:

    "'Cause I'm going to die with a twinkle in my eye
    'cause I sung songs, spun stories,
    loved, laughed and drank wine"
