    One Mint Julep--The Clovers (1952)



    yrics
    One early mornin', as I was walkin'
    I met a woman, we started talkin'
    I took her home, to get a few nips,
    But all I had was a mint julep.
    One mint julep was the cause of it all.
    I don't remember just how it started,
    I only know that we should have parted.
    I stole a kiss, and then another.
    I didn't mean to take it further.
    One mint julep was the cause of it all.
    The lights were burning low, there in the parlor,
    When through the kitchen door, up popped her father.
    He said 'I saw you when you kissed my daughter.
    Better wed her right now, or face a slaughter!'
    I didn't know just what I was doin'
    I had to marry or face ruin.
    A mint julep, a mint julep,
    A mint julep, a mint julep,
    One mint julep was the cause of it all.
    Now, I don't want to bore you with my troubles
    But from now on I'll be thinkin' double.
    I'm through with flirtin' and drinkin' whiskey.
    I got six extra children from a-gettin' frisky.
    A mint julep, a mint julep,
    A mint julep, a mint julep,
    One mint julep was the cause of it all.

    I like the obnoxiousness of this tune, but its cool:cool:
    Im far from a musician, but I would think this tune would be hard to learn to covero_O
    My music tastes run the gammit from rock, jazz, pop, older country, classical, bit the '80s are my favorite:D
