THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH WINE

BEFORE THE VINES ARE BARREN

AND WHEN THE CELLAR IS DRY

YOU WILL REMEMBER THIS NIGHT

 

DRINK, DRINK, DRINK TO ME

AND THINK OF ME FONDLY WHEN I AM GONE

AND DRINK, DRINK, DRINK TO ME

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING I DID WRONG

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING I SAID

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING

 

THERE ARE ONLY SO MANY TIMES

BEFORE THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN

BECOME YOUR WHOLE LIFE

AND YOU WILL REMEMBER THIS NIGHT

 

THERE ARE ONLY SO MANY TIMES

BEFORE YOU REALIZE

ALCOHOL CAN PURIFY

AND YOU WILL REMEMBER THIS NIGHT

 

SO DRINK, DRINK, DRINK TO ME

AND THINK OF ME FONDLY WHEN I AM GONE

AND DRINK, DRINK, DRINK TO ME

SORRY FOR EVERYTHING I DID WRONG

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING I SAID

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING

 

MANGEZ LA FEMME!

 

ONLY SO MANY TIMES YOU CAN FAIL,

WHEN A FRIEND WILL POST YOUR BAIL

AND GET YOUR ASS OUT OF JAIL

AND YOU WILL REMEMBER THAT NIGHT

 

THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH WINE

BEFORE THE VINES ARE BARREN

AND WHEN THE CELLAR IS DRY

YOU WILL REMEMBER THIS NIGHT

 

SO DRINK, DRINK, DRINK TO ME

AND THINK OF ME FONDLY WHEN I AM GONE

DRINK, DRINK, DRINK TO YOU

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING I DID WRONG

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING I SAID

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING

 

IS SHE BLOODY?

IS SHE RARE?

IS SHE VERY WELL-DONE?

WHEN YOU BOIL THE SKIN OFF THE BONE

AND REMOVE THE HAIR,

YOU'LL HAVE SOME FUN

 

GRIND YOUR BEEF

PULL YOUR PORK

JERK YOUR CHICKEN WELL

MAKE YOUR SAUSAGE AS LONG

AS THE LIGHT ON THE TOUR EIFFEL

THEN FAREWELL

MA BELLE

 

MANGEZ LA FEMME!

JE NE VEUX RIEN OUBLIER

NE DIT JAMAIS JAMAIS

JAMAIS JAMAIS JAMAIS

 

NOW DRINK AND DRINK 

AND DRINK AND DRINK TO ME

ET PUIS MANGEZ MANGEZ MANGEZ MANGEZ

MANGEZ LA FILLE

THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH WINE

BEFORE THE VINES ARE BARREN

AND THEN THE CELLAR IS DRY

YOU WILL REMEMBER THIS NIGHT

 

DRINK, DRINK, DRINK TO ME

DRINK, DRINK, DRINK TO YOU

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING I SAID

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING

 

MANGEZ LA FEMME!
