A funny song from the '60's or '70's, to the tune of ''Green Sleeves''. ''I met my love in a grocery store...?

...green stamps was all she gave, so I put them all in my Green Stamp book''.

Are there any ''old timers'' out there who might remember?

    I found my love in a grocery shop,

    Selling pickles and egg-plants and bottles of pop;

    She asked me to try her asparagus tips,

    And I fell for the smile on her ruby red lips.

    Green stamps were all she gave,

    Green stamps were all I took,

    Green stamps were all I saved,

    So I pasted them all in my green stamp book.

    I'd go every day just to gaze at her face,

    And in no time at all I had bought out the place.

    Tho' ne'er did I e'er taste her ruby red lips,

    I own four thousand cans of asparagus tips.

    Green stamps . . .

    Whenever I'm lonely or tired or blue,

    I go to my bookshelf and here's what I do:

    I reach for that book and then with loving care,

    I count every green stamp that's pasted in there.

    Green stamps . . .

    I think you mean this...

    I met my love in a grocery shop

    Selling pickles and eggplant and bottles of pop

    She asked me to try her asparagus tips

    And I fell for the smile on her ruby red lips.

    Green stamps was all she gave

    Green stamps was all I took

    Green stamps was all I saved

    And I pasted them all in my green stamp book.
