Wonderful Wino Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

L.A. in the summer of 69
I went downtown and bought me some wine
Oh, I drank it down under the table
I said, Watch me now, I'm gonna eat the label"

Well I'm a wino man, don't you know I am?

36 24, hips about 30
I seen a fine lady and I started talkin' dirty
Boy, she looked over at me and she raised her thumb
She said, "Jam down the road you bum, bum, bum, bum"

I'm a wino man, don't you know I am?

I went to the country and while I was gone
I lost control of my body functions
On the road ahead at the ladies front lawn
I'm so ashamed, but I'm a wino man, I can't help myself

I've been drinkin' all night till my eyes got red
Stumbled on the gutter and busted my head
Bugs in my zoot suit, been scratchin' like a dog
I can't stand no water and I stink like a hog

Give me a five dollar bill and an overcoat too
Give me a five dollar bill and an overcoat too
A five dollar bill and an overcoat too
A five dollar bill and a floor shine shoe

Songwriters
Simmons Jeffery Melvin; Zappa Frank
