Words and Music by W. P. Chase.

Long years ago, when I was young and quite a little boy,
I knew a sweet and winsome lass, who was my constant joy;
We were loving friends and playmates, and I never shall forget-
How I would kiss her on the sly; 'tis fresh in mem'ry yet.

If you'd taste of heaven, yet do not care to die,
Just go and find a pretty girl and kiss her on the sly;
She may act as if she's angry, but laddies that's her way;
Go ahead and try again, she soon will say "you may."

The years have passed, we're older grown, that little lass and I;
But still we love and every night I kiss her on the sly;
In a month we're to be married, and then we will not care
Who sees our bliss-for then the kiss will be upon the square.- Chorus.

Encore Verse.
Some men are often much too bold, as girls are sometimes shy:
Don't make a grub when going to kiss, as if you would black her eye;
Take your time-be patient-the kiss will keep-take care;
Don't make a lunge or sudden leap-remember that it's there.- Chorus.
