Love in Cincinnati lyrics

Listen

Saturday night in Cincinnati
Cindy and I went downtown
Left the kids with her mom and daddy
Looking for a little time alone.
She said, "Would you like to see a movie?
Or find that new French restaurant"
I stopped and drew her closer to me.
"Darling, you are all I want."

Love lasts long in Cincinnati
Though other feelings come and go
Love is forever just like the river
The beautiful
The beautiful
The beautiful Ohio.

Here on the Ohio river shore
With an old suspension bridge across it
Our underwear lives together in a drawer
Our shoes side by side in one closet.
And I don't need to tell you my history
Or why I do what I do
I think more about that sweet mystery
Of spending a lifetime with you.

Love lasts long in Cincinnati
Though other feelings come and go
With all the love that's in you, you continue to continue
On the beautiful
The beautiful
The beautiful Ohio.

Marriage: it has many rules.
Don't try to make the other one improve.
Mind your manners. Don't be cruel.
Don't make any sudden moves.
When your life feels broken,
Don't feel everything needs to be said.
Keep all disastrous thoughts unspoken,
And when in doubt, go upstairs to bed.

Love lasts long in Cincinnati
Though other feelings come and go
Marriage keep going like the river flowing
The beautiful
The beautiful
The beautiful Ohio.
