Chorus. O John, come kiss me now, now, now; O John, my luve, come kiss me now I O John, come kiss me by and by, For weelye ken the way to wool
O some will court and compliment, And ither some will kiss and daut;
But I will mak o' my gudeman, My ain gudeman,—it is nae faute.

And some will hause in ither's arms, And that's the way I like to do!
