The Lyrics

Oak aroma in the vintage really is quite plain.
It is not way sweet, yet not effete--
Not a vintage to pour down the drain.

Oak aroma, clean and bright; well, here's mud in your eye.
It's not aged in crocks; there's no phyllox-
era in the grapes, it's crisp and dry.

It's grown on some long sloping land
With the terraces carefully planned.
This Chardonnay. . .
Sips! is mighty sharp, I'd say.
That is, I'm sayin',
I like this wine, oak aroma'd;
Oak aroma's OK.

Oak aroma in the vintage enhances the plain
Dishes that I eat; they are replete
With a vicious boredom, I complain.

Oak aroma, clean and bright. I am getting pie-eyed.
Now I slur my talk. . .can hardly walk;
I feel knock-kneed. . .reel from side to side.

I try to go up sloping land--
This is not terra firma I've scanned.
This darn pathway--
Splits! Frost paraphrase I say:
"Two paths diverge and
I'm good and primed, so qua coma,
And I don't know which way!"

Perché sono appassionato di vino, ti do tre cinque anche se la parodia manca la fine che corresponderebbe alla canzone originale. Avresti potuto scrivere, forse,

“Two paths diverge …”
But all roads lead to Rome. Ahh
Oak aroma (O-A…K-A-R-O-M-A),
oak aroma’s okay!

Solamente un suggerimento, amico 

A toast to you for this one John. Although, you seem a little boozy today...should I be worried ?

I think it made all the difference...
