A NICE PLACE TO VISIT

By John D. Loudermilk
1966 Acuff-Rose Publ. Inc.

I've seen the way you handle other guys
I've watched the water fall from their eyes
Your little world of love is so unfair
It would be a nice place to visit
But I'd sure hate to live there

The kisses that you give 'em must be nice
'Cause they keep on coming back despite the price
Your love is prob'bly something very rare
It would be a nice place to visit
But I'd sure hate to live there

It would be so nice to taste those kisses you leave lying 'round so loose
But I'd wake up in the mornin' with a king size case of the blues

Yea, my mama told me something 'way back then
She said "If you get burned, boy, don't go back again"
Your beauty keeps on buggin' me, I swear
It would be a nice place to visit
But I'd sure hate to live there
