Liquor store romance.


Merlot Lyrics by J Francis Olson 2014

About a year ago I bought a new merlot. You tried to help n’ first I just said “no”.
And then we picked out one fine Bordeaux.

Ohhh you were just so fine. Ohhh just give it time.

Friday at Manny’s we had A’ la Carte, That glass of wine surely warmed our hearts
And the conversation was a work of art

Ohhh I was hypnotized. Ohhh by your almond eyes.

There we were with the lights down low. I saw you smile in the warm glow.
Something inside you just know.

Ohhh you just got my heart. Ohhh it’s a real good start.

We caught a cab to the Dakota lounge. Swingin to the grooves of some real jazz hounds
If I’m in for a penny I’m in for a pound.

Ohhh I’m a fool for your love
Ohhh I’m a fool for your love
Ohhh I’m a fool for your love
Ohhh just a fool for your love.
