The Lyrics

Oh yes, I'm The Grape Upender,
Upending the Grape as I smile
My need is such, I've a wino's touch
This old Thunderbird is my style

Oh yes, I'm The Grape Upender
I lift the carafe to my lips
I chug and binge, with an elbow hinge
My plain paper bag sometimes rips..

Unreal is this feeling that makes me weave
Unreal when I feel what I drink and conceal..

Oh yes, I'm The Grape Upender
I'll stagger and act like a clown
I drink to be what I'm not, you see
I wear shaggy clothes, zipper down
Pee freely in gutters around..

Unreal is this feeling that makes me weave
Unreal as I steal one more pint to conceal..

Yes, I'm The Grape Upender
Just stagger thru back streets in town
I drink to be what I'm not, you see,,
Discarding old empties around
And watching my life trickle down

A long and winey load. Robust with a whiny tone. Well drunk, Farce.

I echo Guy's comment. Im not sure if its sung UP-pender or if its sung YOU-pender, but since one of them must be right i'll give you 555s.

I don't give you a 5 for funny, but a 5 for a show of the end result of alcoholism. By the way, I thought the original song was by the Penguins. The security code is fitting - pe2.
