A LESSON IN LOVE.
Copyright. 1896, by S. H. Brown.
Words by Charles H. McIntosh. Music by a Phila. Gallery God.

If you're in love, deep in love, over head and heels,
And you don't know how to love, but know how it feels,
A pretty Miss of loveliness perhaps you'll meet some day.
You'll want to pop the question, and you won't know what to say.
So take advice, don't be too nice, and by this lesson you'll get spliced,
The secret true I'll tell to you:

Chorus.
First you take her pretty hand in yours,
Then you gently squeeze her 'round the waist,
Step by step you closer get,
Then her pretty lips you kiss.
Ask her then to be your darling wife-
Swear you'll be true as stars above,
Give another fond caress, and she's bound to answer yes.
And there you have a lesson in love.

There's many men bashful men we meet them ev'ry day,
Who could win a maiden if they only knew the way;
They're timid, though: they don't know. they, don't know what to say;
They'll keep on courting maidens till their hair Is turning gray.
So take advice, don't be too nice, and by this lesson you'll get spliced.
The secret true I'll tell to you:

Chorus.
First you take her pretty hand in yours.
Then you gently squeeze her 'round the waist.
Step by step you closer get,
Then her pretty lips you kiss,
Ask her then to he your darling wife-
Swear you'll be true as stars above,
Give another fond caress, and she's bound to answer yes,
And there you have a lesson in love.
