Written and sung by Sam Devere.

If you ever go a courting I'll tell you what to do,
If you wish to De successful in your suit;
Pick out a Sunday evening when the father's out of town.
Ho you won't come in contact with his boot.
Just take her in the parlor, let her sit upon your knee.
Squeeze her and hug her awful tight;
Then kiss her on the upper lip, repeat it once or twice.
Then suddenly turn down the light.

Turn down the light when you're both alone,
'Specially on a Sunday night;
When you're sitting on the sofa and she says Oh, George!"
You'd better turn down the light.

One night I was a courting And I wasn't losing time.
For I thought her parents were asleep in lied;
But they were both awake and they took in all we said,
For their bedroom was just overhead.
The old man tried to come down stairs
To kick me clean out of sight,
But his wife said John, you know you was once young yourself.
And you'd better turn down the light.

Turn down the light and don't be a fool.
You know it's Sunday night;
You was once young yourself, and when you came a courting me.
You always turned down the light.

I was having such a time that I didn't see the dock
Was pointing to half past one,
But I didn't care a nickel, she was sitting on my knee,
And her weight was only a ton.
I was just kissing her for the hundredth time,
And hugging her with all my might.
When a policeman peeked in the window And said:
You'd better turn down the light.

Turn down the light, it's against the law.
You know it's Sunday night;
The neighbors are complaining, but they're all a peeking in,
So you'd better turn down the light.
