Kisses Sweeter Than Wine - Remastered - Lyrics

There once was a young man who'd never been kissed
He's got to thinkin' it over how much Ihe had missed
So he got me a girl and he kissed her and then, and then
Oh, lord, well he kissed 'er again Because she had kisses sweeter than wine
She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine Well he asked her to marry and to be his good wife
He told her we'd be so happy for the rest of his life
He begged and he pleaded like a natural man
And then, whoops oh lord, well she gave him her hand Well we worked very hard both me and my wife
Workin' hand-in-hand to have a good life
We had corn in the field and wheat in the bin
And then, whoops oh lord, I was the father of twins Well their children they numbered just about four
And they all had a sweetheart a'knockin' on the door
They all got married and they wouldn't hesitate
He was, whoops oh lord, the grandfather of eight Well now that he's old and he's already to go
He get to thinkin' what happened a long time ago
Had a lot of kids, a lot of trouble and pain
But then, whoops oh lord, well he'd do it all again Because she had kisses sweeter than wine
She had, mmm? kisses? sweeter? than? wine
