When girls are only babies, Their mammas quite insist That they by us, against our wills, Be kissed--, and kissed--, and kissed.
But when those girls are eighteen, Their mammas say we sha'n't, And though we'd like to kiss them, why We can't--, we can't--, we can't.
Note(s): This song first appears in the 1921 edition of Carmina.
