Franz Ferdinand - Wine In The Afternoon Lyrics

So this is summer and the gallow gas is running low
But I don't mind, I'm doing things and I'm doing them with you

Well, you know he's gonna want his rent tonight
But we'll have to tell him how to swallow
All the rent this month

So summer stains the sky with inky swirls that bring the thunder low
But I don't mind, I'm doing things and doing them with you

And if you're smart you'll put that book back down
You'll drag me to the floor
Drag me down for more

Drinking wine
Drinking wine in the afternoon
Do-do do-dooo

Drinking wine
Drinking wine in the afternoon
Do-do do-dooo

Tomorrow's Thursday, that's my day of work
That's my day of walking up the merry hill road making up
Some lie about some job applied for

Well, I've been drinking wine
Well, I've been drinking wine in the afternoon

Do-do, do-dooo

Fifty little filters left their filthy buts behind
Left their blackened heads down
In the ashes that's the last before

I pulled apart and placed within the papers
For a drag of five deserves a second life
Deserves a second life

Don't we all, don't we all
Don't we all, don't we all, all

Love drinking wine
Love drinking wine in the afternoon
Do-do do-dooo

Love drinking wine
Love drinking wine in the afternoon
Do-do do-dooo

Bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine
Bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine
Bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine, bottle of wine

  19. RandomlyGenerated

    wine in the afternoonsong length 4:20i see what you did there

  20. Hapie Star

    Ya'll realize this song is about alcoholism right? That's why the end has such a strange and unsettling tone.... It's acting happy because the lie they tell themselves and the alcohol is what gets them through the shallowness of their existence... That's why theirs such an overdone filter, color is washed out, the end has them looking depressed, sometimes surrounded by their garbage and broken down car, etc..


    if you aware the song length is 4:20

    king catnip

    great interpretation, but being from the south myself dont say ya'll , your better then that

  48. Saving grace

    @OMGitsmantequilla me to XD

  49. josephusmuris

    Just cannot believe I've never commented on this vid before. One of my all-time favorites - first sunny day of summer today after the rain, just had to listen to this.

    It's so happy and so sad, reminds me of so many easy summers. So many mixed emotions, sunny days, wine, old loves. The fleeting bliss of adolescence...

    Thanks Franz Ferdinand, we all love you too.

  50. Espion400

    Best part of song 4:08 - 4:21

  57. AngieEnz84

    "And if you're smart, you'll put that book back down/And drag me to the floor"

    Well, if you insist, Alex.

    This song makes me so happy. Great lazy day tune.

  58. dudamonnerat

    Hey... This girl looks like the girl in the L. Wells video...

  59. Lewis Thompson

  89. 7FoX

    @SabrinaKristina1 I want to live in this video too

  90. mrbassman25


    probably just cause im Scottish. the accents are a bit more obvious to me, all i can hear is the English in their accents, although Alex has spent alot of his adult life in Glasgow, so the scottish twang is definately there.

    ur right though.... either way.... what a fantastic band....

    Bob's parents live just a few miles from me in a local village :)

  91. mrbassman25


    alex is 'yorkshire' born and bred i believe, the only birth place scot is the drummer who is a Glasweigan !!

    it's also obvious in their accents, so technically they are more of an English band than a scottish one! ;)

  92. mrbassman25


    hate to burst your bubble and fantasy's but only one scotsman is in the band, 3 of them are English :P

  93. Mazie Stine

    I would like your comment except:
    No you don't wish you're marriage was like this video because he was lying to her about the job he was applying for. Really, not matter WHAT end of the spectrum you're on, that's not a very brilliant idea.

  94. SabrinaKristina1

    I want to live in this video.

  95. SonohraFan4ever

    this song is very nice!!!
    I love Franz Ferdinand!
