The lyrics are sung from the perspective of someone who finds drinking red wine the only way to forget his woes, his family feuds, his work and mainly (as sung from the song itself) a woman who lingers constantly in the mind of the one who drinks. By drinking apparently his woes go away he feels a little relief, only to find that, the same woman who caused him to go drinking arrives at the bar and makes the drinker feel even worse. After drinking too much, he is tumbling on the street where he is found by his presumed father and offered a helping hand to get up.

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

Red, red wine
It’s up to you
All I can do, I’ve done
But memories won’t go
No, memories won’t go

I’d have sworn that with time
Thoughts of you 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 tearing apart
My blue, blue heart

I’d have sworn that with time
Thoughts of you 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 tearing apart
My blue, blue heart
