Words from the Waverly. Music by E. H. Bard.

I've thought the matter over, and what I think is this:
There are very few, if anythings, much sweeter than a kiss.
Especially when parents or watchful eyes are nigh;
What can be any sweeter than kissing on the sly?
What can be any sweeter than kissing on the sly?

Some love to walk by moonlight, some on the lake to glide,
And some to hold the ribbons with dear ones by their side;
But I know what is better, ah, yes indeed, do I!
To all of these what I prefer is kissing on the sly.

A maid may look demure, as though she didn't know
Of such a thing as kissing, or think of doing so;
Of course all this is proper when anybody's by,
But, watch your opportunity and kiss her on the sly.
