[Verse]

There are kisses that mean little to the taker or the giver,
There are other that mean Oh so much, Of those we must beware,
For the kiss that from certain party fairly makes you shiver
From another is a trifle light as air,
Often times when lips are meeting
one or both is really cheating,
It's no more than pressure of the finger tips,
In some cases you go through it,
Feeling there is nothing to it,
For a kiss comes from the heart and not the lips.

[Refrain]

So kiss, kiss
There's nothing that's amiss,
In the friendly kisses of a friend or two,
You may get some frigid glances,
But one has to take those chances
I don't see a thing to fuss about do you,
Do you
So kiss kiss
I gives another bliss
you have thousands and just one you'll never miss,
If it makes some sad heart lighter,
If it makes this old world brighter
Don't be stingy
Don't be stingy,
Don't be cross about a little thing like a kiss.

[Verse]

You've been witness to the meeting of two very charming ladies,
Who rush madly at each other like two bees about to sting,
In reality they each may wish the other one in Hades,
But they kiss embrace and say "you dear old thing,"
I myself have often seen it
and I know how much they mean it,
Each is thinking my where did she get that hat?
There are gushing smiles deceiving
There they kiss again on leaving,
"Come and see me dear, I will dear, goodbye cat!"

[Refrain]

So kiss, kiss
There's nothing that's amiss,
In the friendly kisses of a friend or two,
You may get some frigid glances,
But one has to take those chances
I don't see a thing to fuss about do you,
Do you
So kiss kiss
I gives another bliss
you have thousands and just one you'll never miss,
If it makes some sad heart lighter,
If it makes this old world brighter
Don't be stingy
Don't be stingy,
Don't be cross about a little thing like a kiss.
