|Kissin' Don't Last

If'n when you go 'a wifin', be sure and try them on for size
Try out the ones with the slender legs, and them with the thunder thighs
See how they shine in the candlelight, and under a lover's moon
Try em out all over town, but in the kitchen too
Try out the ones with the biggest smile, and the purdiest lips too
But keep in mind that kissin don't last, but good cookin' do
Yeah, keep in mind that kissin' don't last . . . but cookery do
It won't take much to cook for you, a simple girl's all it takes
Just keep in mind about the simple kind . . . No brains, no headaches (Right)
And when you're lookin' for your man, will he work, does he play, can he dance
Don't judge the first guy to come along by the way he fills a pair of pants
(As the saying goes in my hometown, "I go nuts over wrangler butts"
Try out the ones with the biggest smile, and the biggest muscles too
But keep in mind that muscles don't last . . . but a handyman do
Yeah, keep in mind that muscles don't last . . . but a handyman do
It takes some brains to fix your thangs, you know your stuff's gonna keep on breakin'
But will he get off his duff and fix your stuff, and while he's up, bring home the bacon
If he's strong as an ox, that won't help lots, if he's dumb as a box of rocks
Just keep in mind that muscles don't last, can he fix it, or is he fakin'
And here's one more little piece of advice, but you can take it with a grain of salt
You can take and fake your shake and bake, and you can say it's the recipe's fault (An I helped!)
An do you know why God didn't make her first, even though that might have been nice
He had to concentrate, and create in peace . . . without hearing her advice
Hey God, come here. Can we be honest with one another? It's not bad for your first try, but could you make him taller? His hair, a little curlier, maybe? It's not as if I have a lot to choose from around here. And that fig leaf . . . Oi Vay! Believe me when I tell you, it's a little big and frankly . . . optimistic! Don't you think that's deceiving? YOU, of all people!
And even if you think you've found someone like we've described
There's one more thing to look for, but the hardest to define
You're gonna wanna laugh out loud, groan and giggle too
But even though kissin' muscles don't last . . . your funny bone do
Yeah, even though kissin' muscles don't last . . . your funny bone do
Keep lookin' till you find a golden heart, light and breezy and true
Not much is gonna last till you're 92, but true love do
Yeah, not much is gonna last til you're 92, but true love do
Yeah, kissin don't last, but cookery do
Muscles don't last but a handyman do
Kissin' muscles don't last, but your funny bone do
Not much is gonna last til your 92 . . . . . but true love do . . . Yeah
Not much is gonna last til your 92 . . . . . but true love do
