Of love at first sight you have heard-
Well, I am a luckless cove,
And love a lass, upon my word,
Who lives in Spy Pond Grove;
At the charming game of croquet, I
Have been ber partner twice;
I love her-ain't it naughty?
Well, it's naughty, but it's nice.

You can not say it's wicked,
For it's not a glaring vice;
You can only say it's naughty-
Well, it's naughty, but it's nice.

Last night I called at Spy Pond Grove,
And asked if she would go
A walk, and we would talk of love;
At first she answered " No; "
Then consented, and we walked and talked,
I thought it paradise,
But she said 'twas wrong; I answered,
Well, it's naughty, but it's nice.-Chorus.

I put my arm around her waist.
Her form I gently pressed,
And then she laid her lovely face
Upon my manly chest;
I kissed her two times on the cheek,
I would have kissed her thrice.
But I whispered, "Ain't it naughty? "
She said, " Yes, but it's so nice."-Chorus.

To-day she asked if she might wed.
Her ma exclaimed, My dear!
You must not think of marrying Fred,
For many and many a year:
It's wicked, miss, your pa and ma
And home to sacrafice,
To get married-Well, I know, said she,
It s naughty, but it's nice.

If you think marriage wicked, ma,
You are guilty of that vice;
You perhaps may call it naughty,
But you also know it's nice.

Her parents have consented, and
In two years she will be
My wife; so now you know my tale:
I hope you will give to me
The same applause, that from you all
So often I entice;
It's naughty p'rhaps to ask it,
But to get it is so nice.-Chorus.
