KISSES SWETER THAN WINE

Now, when I was a young man who´d never been kissed

I got to thinkin' it over how much I had missed

I got me a girl and then I kissed her and then, and then whoops, 

Oh, lordy, well I kissed 'er again

Because she had kisses sweeter than wine

She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine.

Sweeter than wine!

 

Well I asked her to marry and to be my sweet wife

I told her we'd be so happy for the rest of our life

I begged and I pleaded like a natural man

And then, whoops, so lordly, well she gave me her hand

Because she had kisses sweeter than wine

She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine.

Sweeter than wine!

 

Well, we worked very hard both me and my wife

Workin' hand-in-hand to try to have a good life

It has corn in the field and lots of wheat in the bins and then, whoops, 

Oh, lordy, I was the father of twins

Because she had kisses sweeter than wine

She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine.

Sweeter than wine!

 

Well our children they numbered just about four

And they all had a sweetheart a'knockin' at the door

They all got married and they didn't hesitate

I was, whoops, so lordly, the grandfather of eight

Because she had kisses sweeter than wine

She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine.

Sweeter than wine!

 

Well now that I'm old and I'm a'ready to go

I get to thinkin' what happened a long time ago

Had a lot of kids, a lot of trouble and pain

But then, whoops, so lordly, well I'd do it all again

Because she had kisses sweeter than wine

She had, mmm…mmm…

Kisses… sweeter than wine!
