Words by Henry Tyrrell. Music by J. A. Silberberg.

The reason why a kiss contains so much felicity.
Is last because each pair of lips is full of electricity;
It flashes in the eye, or in a smile so tender.
And then the lips together pressed, produce the kiss in splendor.

Now this device is known by the name of kissaphone,
Of all the 'phones invented, it is by far the best;
No other electricity gives half as much felicity,
For love turns on the current, and the kiss does the rest.

To work the kissaphone you do not need a battery,
Nor any dynamo machine with magnets and such mattery;
You do not ring a bell, nor Central call, helloing,
It only wants a wish, a sigh, to set the thing a-going.-Refrain.

The kissaphone was not invented by an Edison,
It never has been patented, like a corset, or a medicine;
It don't get out of gear, if anything is missing,
There is no monthly bill to pay, nor charge for extra kissing.

The kissaphone's in use throughout the whole community,
You need not be a millionaire to have the opportunity;
There's no more price to pay for one kiss, or for twenty,
So why not push the thing along and kisses have in plenty.
