Words and Music by Al. Dunlap.

The evening shades had gathered; two lovers by the gate
Were standing in the starlight, the hour was growing late;
the time had come for parting, one kiss the lad did crave;
The maiden slyly shook her head, and then this answer gave:

"No, you cannot kiss me, that would not be right;
Mamma would scold, I'm certain-no. you can t to-night."
But with a smile so roguish, as she shook back her golden hair,
She said, "Kiss me once for mamma, then I know she will not care."

He kissed the fair, young maiden, bade her a fond good-night.
For both their hearts were happy, and filled with love's delight;
The stars shone on and twinkled, just as they had before,
For oft they'd heard the story in the self-same way told o'er.- Chorus.

Long years have come and vanished: a maid with golden hair-
Is standing by the gateway; she's young and she is fair.
Her lover stands beside her, and begs a parting kiss;
She gives the answer mamma gave when yet a winsome miss.- Chorus.
