  • Well, when I was a young man never been kissed
  • I got to thinkin' it over how much I had missed
  • So I got me a girl and I kissed her and then, and then
  • Oh, lordy, well I kissed 'er again
  • CHORUS
  • 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 oh lordy, well she gave me her hand
  • CHORUS
  • 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
  • CHORUS
  • Well our 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
  • I was, whoops oh lord, the grandfather of eight
  • CHORUS
  • 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 oh lordy, well I'd do it all again
  • Because she had kisses sweeter than wine
  • She had, mmmkissessweeterthanwine
