She dared my lips to try it -- I kissed her on the sly, I kissed her on the quiet, I kissed her on the eye, I kissed her finger tips, And then, as I grew bolder, I kissed her on the lips. I kissed her east and west, I kissed her north and south, But the place I love to kiss her best, Is on her pretty mouth.
