Spoken.-Some girls say they don't like kissing-well, I wouldn't tell a story
about a little thing like that. I once heard a girl say if she had a sweetheart
and he kissed her-she'd want to die. Now if I had a sweetheart and he didn't
kiss me, that's when I'd want to die.
Do you like a kiss? why, of coarse, so do I,
And I've had such a lot in the sweet gone by,
I can tell you and show you the very best one
To give to your sweetheart, and oh! it's such fun!

Oh, kissing is a dainty art.
It's thro' the lips you reach the heart.
Gently place your arm- around your girl so, so,
Softly lay your lips to hers and whisper low,
"My darling love, hold still, I pray;
It can't he wrong, for it's done every day."
With a little laugh and sigh she will
Throw her arms around you and hold still.- [Dance]

So kiss if you like, but don't make a noise,
It robs a sweet kiss of one-half of its joys;
Don't pucker your lips, but just softly close,
Each turn to the right, for you each have a nose.- Chorus.

Now slowly and softly let trembling lips meet,
Till you feel a strange thrilling clear down to your feet;
Don't move till you feel pit-a-pat go her heart;
You'll all know how to finish, now I've told you how to start.- Chorus.
