"Riper The Berry"
words & music by: Dan Gold, Ruby Gold, Kim Morrison, Ronnie Godfrey

I remember the summer I turned seventeen
Emotional crossroads - I was caught in between
She was older, I know, but it was more than a crush
Cause each time I saw her, I got a really big rush

The tracks were all rusty since the railroad shut down
Was the easiest shortcut that led into town
When I passed her house, she was out on the porch
Lookin' pretty as a picture and hot as a torch
Uhhh Hunnnuh Uhnnnuh... And I'd been told...

The riper the berry, the sweeter the wine
There's a lot to be said for a little time on the vine
Just the right age makes it taste so refined
The riper the berry, the sweeter the wine

Now, August is sultry down deep in the South
As I walked I'd been wishin' f'sumpin cool in my mouth
A light summer breeze caught the hem of her dress
Stopped me dead in my tracks - took away all my breath

She stood there just smilin' with a glass of iced tea
Which she stroked on her throat then beckoned to me
"Come on," she invited "I've got more inside"
I stepped off those tracks with my innocent pride
MmmHmmm... And I'd been told...


That hot steamy day's still a fond memory
I'll never forget the taste of sweetened iced tea
She showed me my future when she took my hand
I went in a boy and came out a man
