I was once I was strolling one very hot summer's day
When I thought laid myself down to rest
In a big field of tall grass
I laid there in the sun and felt it carressing my face
As i fell asleep and dreamed
I dreamed i was in a hollywood movie
And that i was the star of the movie
This really blew my mind
The fact that me an overfed long haired leaping nome
Should be the star of a hollywood movie, hmmm
But there i was
I was taken to a place
The hall of the mountain kings
I stood high by the mountain tops
Naked to the world
In front of
Every kind of girl
There was long one's tall ones, short ones, brown ones,
Black ones, round ones, big ones, crazy ones
Out of the middle, came a lady
She whispered in my ear
Something crazy
She said,
Chorus x4
Spill the wine and take that pearl
I could feel hot flames of fire roaring at my back
As she disappeared, but soon she returned
In her hand was a bottle of wine
In the other a glass
She poured some of the wine from the bottle into the glass
And raised it to her lips
And just before she drank it, she said
Take the wine take that pearl
Spill the wine, take that pearl
Spill the wine, take that pearl
Spill the wine, take that pearl
Take that pearl, yeah!
It's on girl, all you gotta do is spill that wine
Spill that wine, let me feel, let me feel hot, yeah! yeah!
Spill the wine, spill the wine, spill the wine, spill the wine,
Spill the wine, spill the wine, spill the wine,
Take that pearl

    ok so for like 20 some years I thought at the chorus was, 'do I dig that girl?' tell me I'm not wrong!

    Spill The Wine will forever remind me of Cape Cod, Mass., 1971. Local radio was limited, but they always play Carol King, War, and....The Carpenters, as well as a group called Apollo 100, Ode to Joy...

    I always heard it "spill the wine and dig that girl". So like i was eating wa-a-a-y too much acid back then.

    Oh pearl, right, okay. It's reference to tantra yoga.

    Anyway -- the idea is that in sex, the male refuses to climax, and instead causes the female to orgasm multiple times. This supposedly does two things, besides getting awfully wet, that is. The female "spills" some kind of energy like "wine" that the male absorbs. This energy, the flames, goes up the whachamacallit thru all the chakras, causing all manner of sensation, until it hits the brain, and then the male achieves "god consciousness" and is immortal, at least, for a few seconds. This is called taking the pearl.

    It's a natural buzz, and, well, you know, there are worse ways to spend a sunday afternoon.

    Now i am going waaay back here. In my day, a woman's virginity (hymen) was sometimes delicately referred to as a "pearl" i. E. Spill the wine and get that pearl. I could be wrong but that is what comes to my mind.

    Um...wet dream.. Have you ever heard of a "pearl necklace"? Or of the above tantric explanation? Incidentally there's a restaurant in my city named Spill The Wine. Hmmmmm...I wonder whether it's conscious or not. Wonder if they serve oysters. Liebfraumilch? Well I suppose we should try it out some night
