WPLJ

Lyrics: Dobard, McDaniels
Music: Dobard, McDaniels

Played once by Jerry Garcia with Merl Saunders on 24 Sep 1971. Originally a hit in the 50s for the Four Deuces, it was covered by Frank Zappa on his "Burnt Weeny Sandwich" LP.

These are the lyrics from the Four Deuces version (thanks to Russ Hiltz of the Mudcats):

Well, WPLJ, sure tastes good to me
WPLJ, won't you take a drink with me
It's a good good wine
Really makes you feel so fine
(so fine, so fine, so fine)

Well, I went to the store
When they opened up the door
I said, please, please, please
Give me some more

Chorus
White port and lemon juice
White port and lemon juice
White port and lemon juice
Ooh, what it'll do to you

Well, the W is white
The P is the port
L is the lemon
And J is the juice

[chorus]

You take the bottle
You take the can
Shake "em up fine
You got a good good wine

[chorus]

I feel so good
I feel so fine
I got plenty lovin'
and I got plenty wine

[chorus]
