Pete Seeger - Kisses Sweeter Than Wine lyrics

When I was a young man I'd never been kissed;
I got to thinking about what I had missed.
I found a girl. I kissed her and then...
Oh lord, I kissed her again.

Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.

He asked me to marry and be his sweet wife;
We would be happy -- all of our life.
He begged and he pleaded like a natural man, and then...
Oh lord, I gave him my hand.

Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, kisses...

I worked mighty hard and so did my wife;
Working hand in hand to make a good life.
Corn in the field and wheat in the bins, and then...
Oh lord, I was the father of twins.

Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, kisses...

Our children numbered just about four
And they all had sweethearts knocking on the door.
They all got married and they didn't wait, I was...
Oh lord! a grandmother of eight!

Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, kisses...

Now we are old and ready to go
Thinking about what happened a long time ago.

We had lots of kids and trouble and pain, but...
Oh lord, we'd do it again.

Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, kisses...
Oooooh, kisses sweeter than wine.
Oooooh, kisses...
