"Mary wants me to sing another funny 'un so we kin have
a little laugh hyer - bout kissing on the Sly. Y'know, that's
the way it kinda goes sometimes,but - hit - this songs pretty
true, I guess, the way it holds out."
Kissing on the Sly
Oh, when you make love with a pretty turtle-dove,
She will linger all around you on the jaw,
You must kiss her for her mother, for her sister and her brother
Till her papa comes to kick you from the door.
Pulls the pistol from his pocket, pulls the hammer for to cock
An' declares he'll blow out yore giddy brains,
but yore ducky says he musn't, 'tisn't loaded, an' he doesn't,
An' you goes ahead to kissin' oncet again.
You want to kiss her neatly, kiss her sweetly, an' completely,
If you want to kiss her so's to kiss her nice,
Whene'er you go to kiss her, make a dodge or two an' miss her,
Then pat her on the kisser oncet or twicet.
When a girl is seventeen, she thinks it's mighty mean
If she can't ketch on to something for a mash,
She'll pucker up her mouth with a pretty little pout,
An' she'll finger all around her big mustache.
She'll make you shiver, she'll make you quiver,
She'll stick as close to you as plaster-glue,
No use for you to tell her you're another girl's feller,
She'll mash your smeller if you do.
Oh, the old maids love it, and the widders ain't above it,
An' they all want a finger in the pie, ought er
They think it's mighty naughty, an' they think they hadn't
But you bet your life they'll kiss you on the sly.
"Now, they cain' keep from laughin', so you (meaning
YOU who play this tape after "Sister Sucky"is laid to rest,MCP)
kin laugh too when you hyer it if you want to."
