Every girl that's in Creation
Loves a lover's tender kiss.
There's not an art of . . .
That fills our maids with such heavenly bliss,
For there is an art in kissing.
Now this is what the girls all say,
But the fun you'll not be missing
If you kiss the way I say.

Chorus: First, you place your loving arm around her,
And you hold her in a fond embrace.
Rest her little head upon your shoulder,
And you look down in her face.
Hug her just as tight as you can squeeze her,
And then while her heart is in a whirl,
Let your lips to hers be pressed
And she will do the rest,
And that's the way to kiss a girl.

Some girls need lots of coaxing,
And you may think you're pleading in vain,
But nine times out of ten they're hoping
And wishing you would ask again.
Other girls are not so quiet,
For they can really understand the way,
But they'll all be glad to try it,
If you kiss the way I say.
