When we were young and poor and lean
We hardly had a bean
You bought me from the ten-cent store
What I’d never had before
Red, with a bow I won’t forget
That heart-shaped box of chocolate
Soon we shared the sweetest kiss
Cheap chocolate brought a lasting bliss.
As we grew older, life was bright
We’d chocolate dark and light and white
Sampled costly treats and creams
Chocolate part of all our dreams
But you and I remember, dear
As this Valentine’s Day grows near
Our love will taste the better yet
When we kiss with cheap chocolate!
