My Sweetheart Won't Give Me a Kiss.
Copyright, 1893, by Ben C. Mason & Co.
Words by Ben C. Mason. Music by E Gareissen.
I am in love with a dear boy, who's very good to me,
And though he's awfully shy and Coy, he does love me,
Now what makes me so mad is this: be won't give me a kiss,
For he should be so very glad of a chance like this.
For my sweetheart won't give me a kiss,
Just think of the fun that I miss;
Some day with surprise he will open his eyes,
For I'll give him something like this (kiss, kiss).
I think it's a horrible shame,
It causes me terrible pain;
I've worked and I've sighed, and I've tried and I've cried,
But I can't get into the game (kiss, kiss).
One day, when we were left alone and no one near to see,
He sat upon the steps of stone with his arm 'round me.
I thought that now I had a Chance, my heart with joy did dance;
He put his lips quite close to mine, but no romance.-Refrain.
I'm sure I cannot tell you why my sweetheart is so shy,
He has a chance to indulge in romance, but he won't try.
When I a larger girl have grown, and we are left, alone,
I'll bring this sweetheart, mine, to time and he'll atone.- Refrain.
