Women and Wine

It was reported Today on Today
A glass or two of red wine everyday
Is not a bad thing to do for you, hey-hey
And the report had the anchors of Today on
The network which hosts Tina Fey say, "hey-hey"

Woman and wine - of course, they're both fine
...yeah, so why not have them both everyday
and make everybody else look and think, "hey-hey"

Well some of the best women of the time drink wine...

and some of the best times I ever had were with wine
It's not a bad thing for you to do - a glass or two per day

drinking wine everyday makes women sing, "hey-hey"

And what's wrong with women taking time to sing songs

Having a laugh or cry - taking time for a glass of red a day

Some of the best talks I ever had were with some wine

and some of the best lines ever written were with wine

and some of the most mighty fine women drink red wine

So go get a bottle or two or three and drink some everyday

Careful just to uncork one per day like the good doctors' say

There's nothing wrong with two glasses and song everyday

Uncorking a bottle as a past-time & watching women unwind

is like drinking a reserved vintage aged with care and time

The descriptions of taste and character - velvety; full bodied

Adjectives & adverbs used to describe both fine women & wine

I enjoy them both all the time --- at least two everyday ---

--- Just like those good doctors' say, "hey-hey" --- hey-hey
