You took me from my mother's lovin' arms
I still had about a foot to grow
Whoa, I must have been only maybe seventeen
It was a very long time ago

Actually, we raised each other
You, our kids and myself
You wait 'til you become a part of me
Then you wanna put me on the shelf
(Put me on the shelf)

Whoa, that first kiss you gave me, I still remember
I was just a child, dear
Your lips were so warm and tender
That kiss, I'll always remember
That was the first day we met

I remember what the preacher said
"Girl, will you be his wedded wife?"
(Forever and ever)
"An' stand beside that boy forever
Like for the rest of your natural life?"
(For the rest of your life)

You took my darlin' babies from me
You really broke my heart in two
God in Heaven knows that I love them
(Heaven knows)
And in your heart you know it's true
(You know it's true)

Oh, that first kiss you gave me, I still remember
I was just a child, your lips were so warm and tender
That kiss, oh, I'll always remember
That was the first day we met
(Always remember, it's a kiss that I'll never forget)

I don't remember too much about my cradle days
(Just don't remember)
Guess you could say I became a woman too fast
(You grew up too fast, too fast)
Whoa, what did I know? That you were the right man for me
(Thats what I knew)
What did I know? I knew that I loved that fast

Whoa, that first kiss you gave me, oh, how I still remember
I was just a child, dear, your lips were so warm and tender
That kiss, I will always remember
'Cause that was the first day we met
The first day we met, darlin', darlin', whoa, the first day we met
(Darlin', darlin', darlin', darlin', remember when)

Whoa, I remember
Come back, baby, let's talk it over
(Remember when)
Don't take your love away from me
(We first met)

Come back, baby
(Remember when)
Oh, don't you wanna try it on one more time boy?
Let's talk it over, let's talk it over
(Remember when)

Oh, how can I forget you?
(Remember when)
Branded me! Scarred by your love
That first kiss you gave me boy
(Remember when)
