Story

Even as a child, I noticed that every time Mama wore bright red lipstick to bed...
the next morning was A LOT HAPPIER around our house!

Lyrics


She brushes back her long dark hair….slips on her best night gown
Sweet perfume drifts thru the air, the lights are all turned down
Her work is done, the kids have all laid down their sleepy heads
TONIGHT she’s gonna wear, his favorite lipstick in bed
 
Chorus:
Lipstick in bed, that’s what I said
Not a shy pale pink, but a deep crimson red
And when the morning comes, they smile at things unsaid
Their little secret, lipstick in bed!
 
He wakes up with the girl he loves, in his warm embrace
The sun is only half as bright, as the smile on his face
He steals a kiss and hugs her tight, while the kids are being fed
LAST NIGHT their mama wore, his favorite lipstick in bed
 
Chorus:
Lipstick in bed, that’s what I said
Not a shy pale pink, but a deep crimson red
And when the morning comes, they smile at things unsaid
Their little secret, lipstick in bed!
 
Lipstick in bed, that’s what I said
Not a shy, pale pink, but a deep crimson red…and
On some distant morning, when silver crowns their heads
They’ll smile and remember, lipstick in bed!
 
Ahhh, she’ll still be wearing….lipstick in bed
