Oh! Bill, do be still; do behave or I'll tell mamma;
Don't do so; let me go; what a naughty man you are.
Oh! Bill, do be still; I think you're going 'most too far;
Don't, I say; oh, go away, or I'll tell mamma.

As it was growing rather late, not safe to be alone;

But when I tried to kiss her, why, of course, she had to say:- Chorus.

We strolled along quite leisurely, at last we reached her home;
Says she, the folks are all abed. Says I, Then we're alone;
She showed me the parlor, where we sat down side by side,
And when my arm slipped 'round her waist she only smiled and sighed- Cho.
