Did you ever notice, mortals-
Now I'll bet a cent you did-
How the ladies-pretty creatures­Can't keep their feelings Lid?
But they are kissing out in public,
Kissing everywhere they meet;
Kiss-kiss at church and shopping,
And-kissing-in the street!
Behold a charming maiden,
Arrayed in fashion's bight,
She meets upon the sidewalk
A friend she saw last night:
"How are you, my darling Nellie?
How glad I am to meet"-
Then a dainty shake of fingers,
And-kissing-in the street

A bachelor beside us
Says, " Pity that is done
So much, for I am certain
It can't be any fun:
This kissing out in public,
Kissing everywhere they meet;
Kiss, kiss, at church and shopping,
And-kissing-in the street!

"But the secret great is this, sir:
The maiden has no beau-
No gentleman to kiss her;
she must her feelings show.
By kissing out in public,
Kissing all she may meet;
Kissing, kiss at church and shopping,
And-kissing- in the street.'

Now, merry-hearted maidens.
And women more discreet,
Give over this bad habit
Of kissing in the street.
Remember that false traitor
Who knelt at Jesus' feet,
And don't become a greater
By kissing in the street.

Be noble-minded women,
With hearts attuned to right,
Then shall each see the other.
As those who dwell in light;
But neve:- for an instant,
Whoever you may meet,
Be caught like silly noodles,
A-kissing in the street.
