The Bleach Boys - Wine, Wine, Wine (1965)

Originally formed as The Catalinas in 1963 by Dale Yost, Jay Stout, Dave Rettig, and Rick Yarnall, this South Dakota band changed their name, as a gimmick, to cash in on the popularity of The Beach Boys. Coming from Sioux Falls and bleaching their hair very light, they only had a drummer and three guitarists for a long period of time. Because of their lack of singer, they primarily played instrumentals. On occasion, they would gather large crowds (who would mistakenly think it was The Beach Boys they were going to see) and once opened for The Byrds. In 1965, the band played at a “battle of the bands” with a crowd estimated at ten thousand people. Finally, in 1966, after a two and a half month tour, the band broke up after failing an attempt at a second full length record.

Before the release of their full length LP, the band released one single. This song, the A-Side, was originally released by The Nitecaps (possibly a Texas-based band?). The B-Side, “Must Be Love,” was an original by the band, but didn’t sell well. This song reached number one, locally, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Lyrics:

You get a new girl
I’ll get a dime
We’ll go out
And buy some wine

Give me wine, wine, wine
Get wine, wine, wine
Wine, wine, fine wine
All the time

You get a new gal
I got mine
We’ll go out
And buy some wine

Give me wine, wine, wine
Get wine, wine, wine
Wine, wine, fine wine
All the time

I’m goin’ to the school
A quarter to nine
Sit in class
And drink my wine

Give me wine, wine, wine
Get wine, wine, wine
Wine, wine, fine wine
All the time

We drank last night
The night before
We’re goin’ out
And drink some more

Give me wine, wine, wine
Get wine, wine, wine
Wine, wine, fine wine
All the time

We drank last night
The night before
We’re goin’ out
And drink some more

Give me wine, wine, wine
Get wine, wine, wine
Wine, wine, fine wine
All the time

Chug it up, chug it up
All night long
Chug it up, chug it up
All night long

Drinkin’ wine, wine, wine
Get wine, wine, wine
Get wine, wine, fine wine
All the time

One more time

Wine, wine, fine wine
All the time
Wine, wine…
