Subject(s): Kisses


I wouldn't be too free with my kisses,
Little Lady,
Though a kiss is very sweet to give or take;
For perhaps some later period than this is,
Little Lady,
You will wish you'd saved them all for Someone's sake.
Though a kiss is nothing wrong,
When the Right Man comes along
You'll remember how you gave them for a whim.
And if you have been too free with your kisses,
Little Lady,
You'll regret you haven't hoarded them for him!

I wouldn't be too free with my kisses,
Little Lady.
They are coinage from the treasure house of love;
They are tenderest and loveliest of blisses,
Little Lady,
Which have fluttered down from Paradise above.
So I'd cherish them, until
You can taste the perfect thrill
When love's marvelous enchantment bids you fast;
And I wouldn't be too free with my kisses,
Little Lady,
Till the Right Man comes to gather them at last!
