Cheap Chocolate

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!
