One early morning, as I was walking
I took her home, to get a few nips

I only know that we should have parted
I didn't mean to take it further
One mint julep was the cause of it all
When through the kitchen door, up popped her father
Better wed her right now, or face a slaughter!"
I didn't know just what I was doing

A mint julep, a mint julep

But from now on I?ll be thinking double
I got six extra children from a-getting frisky
A mint julep, a mint julep
One mint julep was the cause of it all
