The gaskets are shot. Get someone to rebuild it, or better yet, show you how to do it.

It's probably a bad needle and seat. If they aren't sealing correctly fuel will leak past them just as you are finding. Could also be a bad float which is leaking and pulling the needle off the seat or just some crud in the carb. Do like Poncho said and rebuild her... 5 yrs is a pretty good run without a freshening on one of these carbs...
