"Kisses Sweeter Than Wine" as written by and Lee Hays Ronnie Gilbert....
When I was a young man and never been kissed
I got to thinking it over what I had missed
I got me a girl, I kissed her and then
Oh Lord, I kissed her again!

Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine

I asked her to marry and be my sweet wife
And we would be so happy the rest of our lives
I begged and I pleaded like a natural man
And then, oh Lord, she gave me her hand!

Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine

I worked mighty hard and so did my wife
working hand in hand to make a good life.
With corn in the fields and wheat in the bins
I was, oh Lord, the father of twins!

Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine

Our children, they numbered just about four
They all had sweethearts knocking at the door
They all got married and they didn't hesitate, I was
Oh Lord, the grandmother of eight!

Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine

Now that we're old and ready to go
We get to thinking what happened a long time ago
We had a lot of kids, trouble and pain
But then, oh Lord, we'd do it again!

Oh, oh, kisses sweeter than wine
Oh, kisses sweeter than wine
