I Kissed Her Under the Parlor Stairs.
Copyright, 1886, by F. Harding.

Oh! the happiest time that ever I spent,
Was under the parlor stairs,
In the nights that I a courting went,
Under the parlor stairs.
Oh! a barrel of beer in the corner stood,
Beside some penny bundles of wood,
And I vowed I'd marry the cook, I would.
Under the parlor stairs.

Oh! I kissed her under the lilac tree,
I kissed her under the rose;
I kissed her under the balcony,
I kissed her under the nose.
I kissed her over the garden wall,
I kissed her unawares;
But, oh! the sweetest kiss of all
Was under the parlor stairs.

Oh! she gave me the best of everything,
Under the parlor stairs;
The breast of a duck, or a leg or a wing,
Under the parlor stairs.
So I bad a "whack," though I didn't get beat,
That is to say I'd a "whack "to cat;
And I found a "good hiding" quite a treat,
Under the parlor stairs.-Chorus.

Oh! I heard the bobby say once to Sue,
I wa3 under the parlor stairs,
Shall I come in for a minute or two,
Under the parlor stairs?
But Susan replied, so that I could hear,
I should like for to ask you in, my dear.
But a man is here looking after the beer,
Under the parlor stairs.-Chorus.

One night the confounded dog would bark,
Under the parlor stairs:
And the master caught me in the dark.
Under the parlor stairs.
But Sue said: It's all through the missis, Sir,
For she wouldn't allow no follower;
But I would have one in spite of her,
Under the parlor stairs.-Chorus.

And now we're married, but we sometimes meet
Under the parlor stairs;
For my wife will say: Come along, my sweet,
Under the parlor stairs.
Now we'll have a cosy cup of tea,
And I'll sit again upon your knee,
And think of the time when you courted me.
Under the parlor stairs.-Chorus.
