Lyrics YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE,
YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE;
IF YOU DON'T
GIVE IT UP,
I KNOW
I''M WASTING MY TIME.

BABY,
I LOVE YOU,
LOVE YOU SO
BUT THE CHERRY WINE
HAS GOT TO GO.
YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME
BECAUSE I'M SO SWEET,
BUT YOUR CHERRY WINE
HAS GOT ME BEAT;
WINE,
WINE,
WINE,
SWEET WINE
ALL THE TIME;
YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO CHOOSE
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE.

YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE,
YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE;
IF YOU DON'T
GIVE IT UP,
I KNOW
I'M WASTING MY TIME.

THEY SEE YOU
LAYING IN THE ALLEY
FLAT ON YOUR BACK,
I BET
THEY'LL SOON FIND YOU
ACROSS A RAILROAD TRACK.
WINE,
WINE,
WINE,
SWEET WINE
ALL THE TIME;
YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO CHOOSE
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE.

YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE,
YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE;
IF YOU DON'T
GIVE IT UP,
I KNOW
I'M WASTING MY TIME.

IT'S GOT YOU TALKING
ALL OUT OF YOUR HEAD,
I EVEN FOUND BOTTLES
IN YOUR BED.
IF YOU DON'T HAVE THAT WINE
YOU'RE IN A RUT
BECAUSE YOUR BELLY THINKS
YOUR THROATS BEEN CUT.
WINE,
WINE,
WINE,
SWEET WINE
ALL THE TIME;
YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO CHOOSE
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE.

YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE,
YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE;
IF YOU DON'T
GIVE IT UP,
I KNOW
I'M WASTING MY TIME.
