Some say that kissing's a sin
But tell me how can that be true?
For kissing has been in this world
Since the very first day there was two

Now if it was illegal then the lawyers, they would sue
And the prisons would be full of folk who had a kiss or two
And if they didn't like it, then away the girls would run
And if it wasn't plenty then the poor folk would get none

Some say that gambling's a sin
But I'll bet you fifteen to one
That gambling has been in this world
Since horses and greyhounds could run

Now if it was illegal then the lawyers, they would sue
And the prisons would be full of folk who had a bet or two
And if they didn't like it, then away the girls would run
And if it wasn't plenty then the poor folk would get none

Some say that swearing's a sin
But where is the man that can tell
For swearing has been in this world
Since the Devil was told, "Go to Hell"

Now if it was illegal then the lawyers, they would sue
And the prisons would be full of folk who had a toss or two
And if they didn't like it, then away the girls would run
And if it wasn't plenty then the poor folk would get none

Some say that smoking's a sin
But a pipe now and then is enough
But smokin' has been in this world
Since Adam taught Eve how to puff

Now if it was illegal then the lawyers, they would sue
And the prisons would be full of folk who had a smoke or two
And if they didn't like it, then away the girls would run
And if it wasn't plenty then the poor folk would get none

Some say that drinking's a sin
But a gaggle is fine now and then
For drinking has been in this world
For ever and ever, amen

Now if it was illegal then the lawyers, they would sue
And the prisons would be full of folk who had a drink or two
And if they didn't like it, then away the girls would run
And if it wasn't plenty then the poor folk would get none
