I told him that I loved him cause I loved him at the time
And I told him that I didn't want any other lips touchin' mine
I whispered love your kisses are sweeter than the wine
But I'd never tasted champagne at the time
At the time I didn't know your name and I'd never seen your face
At the time I'd never lost myself in your tender warm embrace
If you've never had filet mignon peanut butter taste just fine
And that's the way it was when I loved him at the time
When I found you I started hearing pretty music I'd never heard
And quietly when we spoke of love it was like I'd learned a brand new word
I once thought I'd seen everything but till I met you I was blind
And I wonder now was I even born at the time
At the time I didn't know your name and I'd never seen your face
At the time I'd never lost myself in your tender warm embrace
If you've never had a T-bone steak saltine crackers taste just fine
And that's the way it was when I loved him at the time
If you've never been to Paris France Big Spring Texas will suit you fine
And that's the way I was when I loved him at the time
