I Will Drink The Wine Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

Someone said, drink the water, but I will drink the wine
Someone said, take a poor man, rich don't have a dime
So fool yourselves if you will, I just haven't got the time
If you can drink the water, I will drink the wine

Someone gave me some small flowers, I held them in my hand
I looked at them for several hours, I didn't understand
So fool yourselves if you will, you can hold out your hand
I'll give back your flowers, and I will take the land
And I will drink the wine

Sometimes I'm very very lonely, there's only me to care
And when I'm very very lonely, I want someone to share
I'm going to drink the wine
I'm gonna take my time

And believe in a world that is mine
Someone gave me flowers, held them in my hand
Looked at them for many hours, didn't understand
Go on and fool yourselves if you will, you can hold out your hand

I'll give back your flowers, and I will take the land
And I will drink the wine, and I will take the land
I will drink the wine
