Fine Song Lyrics
It started with the wine
We were shopping for a bottle to bring to her cousin's soiree.
My cousin's a sou chef, she's very gourmet.
I grabbed my favorite cabernet.
He's got no clue and so I say:
Darling, the wine
They're serving monkfish, so darling the wine can't be red.
How 'bout this Austrian Riesling instead?
Honey, you know I don't like the Riesling.
When have you ever seen me drink Riesling?
Never but can't you listen this once,
Red wine and fish, you'll look like a dunce
I'll bring the red, you bring the white
That way I'll still get drunk, you'll still be right
And then there was the cab.
The cab. We're stuck in the middle of Broadway,
Ten minutes we wait.
We're twelve blocks away, and we're already late.
I point out there'd be no delay,
If we would just turn that a-way.
Honey, the cab!
was pointed squarely down Broadway.
I know you're concerned, but your cousin's on Broadway,
so why have we turned?
Darling, I know my cousin's on Broadway,
but there was lots of traffic on Broadway!
Surely, but now in my own defense,
We're farther away, which doesn't make sense
Fine, driver, please stop here
if you would
Walking will do us both some good.
We don't say anything as we're walking down Broadway.
It's like I'm walking next to a stranger.
I've had that feeling more and more, like I don't even know him/her!
But right now it?s cold, and we're still in a hurry,
I'm not gonna stop and I'm not gonna worry.
We'll be fine.
And then it starts to rain.
My hair starts to drip
My shoes are a mess
My bag's getting wet
and so is my dress
I love the rain.
How everything shimmers!
The wind?s picking up, we've got no umbrella.
It dots her hair like morning dew.
Suddenly I start to think
Of the day that I first met her
A bucket of snow had landed in her hair
I picture her shake the snowflakes off her shoulders
And somehow I want to get us back to there
I want her to know that I can't bare to spend
a single day without her
But how can she know?
How can she know?
Sh*t! OW! My shoe, my shoe, my shoe, dammit!
This is really fantastic, no really absurd,
And what, you just stand there, and don?t say a word,
Fine, I'm gonna go, we're late for my cousin.
God help the soul who's late for my cousin!
You can stay put here out in the rain,
But don?t leave it up to me to explain
Give me the wine, don't take all day
Fine then! Bring it yourself, your cabernet, Jesus!
Shut up Claire and marry me!
