Hi and thanx to all those who replied.Not all UB40 fans smoke or sniff . I am a musician and love doing ub40 midi tracks ( near exact ... not like the stuff you get on the net done by the "pro's" which are for sale in catalogues)

Please take a look at the questions that were sent to Astro , asking for his explanation of the meaning " burn bad rizzla pon "
( something like that ...on the site.....the writer only asked for an explanation not a correction of the lyrics ) and Astro responded saying that the lyrics were actually "burn bad ganja in "

Print the lyrics and listen to the cd ...the lyrics are not exactly the same


In brackets is kinda what you hear on the cd and the lyrics posted here is probably the exact N.Diamond version ( original )...If so , my personal opinion is that this is a ub40 site ...and should reflect their versions...well maybe theres some copyright complcations which i know nothing off ...well if so , i"m sorry.


Red Red Wine

Red, red wine
Go to my head
Make me forget that I
Still need her(YOU) so

Red, red wine
It's up to you
All I can do, I've done
But(NO "but") memories won't go
No,(NO "no,") memories won't go

I'd have thought("I have sworn" and all the versus after the first sounds like " having sworn")
That with time
Thoughts of her(you)
Would(NO "would") leave my head
I was wrong
And I find
Just one thing makes me forget

Red, red wine
Stay close to me
Don't let me be alone
It's tearin' apart
My blue, blue heart

Red Red Wine Toast Section

Red red wine you make me feel so fine
You keep me rocking all of the time
Red red wine you make me feel so grand
I feel a million dollars when your just in my hand
Red red wine you make me feel so sad
Any time I see you go it makes me feel bad
Red red wine you make me feel so fine
Monkey pack him rizla(mossie) pon the sweet dep line
Red red wine you give me whole heap of zing
Whole heap of zing mek me do me own thing
Red red wine you really know how fi love
Your kind of loving like a blessing from above
Red red wine I love you right from the start
Right from the start with all of my heart
Red red wine in a 80's style
Red red wine in a modern beat style, yeah

Chorus

Give me little time, help me clear up me mind
Give me little time, help me clear up me mind
Give me Red wine because it make me feel fine
Mek me feel fine all of the time
Red red wine you make me feel so fine
Monkey pack him rizla(moosie) on the sweet dep line
The line broke, the monkey get choke
Burn bad rizla(ganja) pon him little rowing boat

Red red wine I'm gonna hold (ON) to you
Hold on to you cause I know you love true
Red red wine I'm gonna love you till I die
Love you till I die and that's no lie
Red red wine can't get you out my mind
Where ever you maybe I'll surely find
I'll surely find make no fuss just stick with us.

Chorus

Red red wine you really know how fi love
Your kind of loving like a blessing from above
Red red wine I love you right from the start
Right from the start with all of my heart
Red red wine you really know how fi love
Your kind of loving like a blessing from above
Red red wine you give me whole heap of zing
Whole heap of zing mek me do me own thing
Red red wine in a 80's style
Red red wine in a modern beat style, yeah.

One In Ten is the same aswell
it's not the exact lyrics in the chorus look:

I am the one in ten
A number on a list
I am the one in ten
Even though I don't exist
Nobody knows me
[Even though I'm always there] - this line
A statistic, a reminder
Of a world that doesn't care

play alone with the CD and you will see....
but it doesn't really bother me :D

Hi Rishi,
It seems to stick in my memory that the version of red red wine done by (UB40) is the Tony-Tribes vesion and not Neil-Diamond as when thay recored it thay did not know he wrote it.
but don't take my word on this from a B.R.M.B Radio-Interview.

Tribes version and didn't know Neil Diamond
had written the song.
love J x
