Gary T Lyr Req: Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee (7) RE: Lyr Req: Drinkin' Wine Spo-dee-o-dee: 3rd verse 30 Apr 02

Rolfyboy6, that may have cracked it!

It sounds to me like "Age runs up forty-nine." Likely they're saying "Age runs up to forty-nine," and the word "to" is somewhat muffled.

The song was a chart hit in 1949, so the statement would be that the vintage, or age, of the wine is up to that year. Makes sense to me.
