This track was written by The Everly Brothers and was played occasionally through the 1981 Tour. Lyrics are reprinted below. Live performances are faithful to these lyrics, although Dave and a backing singer (probably Vince?) sing "you kiss her" during the instrumental break at the middle of the song. The entire track, sourced from a soundboard recording of 1981-06-27 Crocs, Rayleigh, Essex, England, UK, is available to listen below. The track is mentioned by Daryl Bamonte in Bong Magazine, Issue 24 on pages 15 and 18, see below:

Lyrics

Wine is sweet and gin is bitter
Drink all you can, but you won't forget her
You talk too much, you laugh too loud
You see her face in every crowd

That's the price of love,
The price of love
The debt you pay with tears and pain
The price of love
The price of love
Can cost you more when you're to blame

Kiss one girl, kiss another
Kiss them all, but you won't recover
You're dancing slow, you're dancing fast
You're happy now, but that won't last

That's the price of love
The price of love
The debt you pay with tears and pain
The price of love
The price of love
Costs you more when you're to blame
