WHY DID I KISS THAT GIRL?

Bashful Johnny Green just turned 17 wore his first long pants
Some dear friends he knew introduced him to Mabel at a dance
She was very nice so he kissed her twice. Then he ran away
In the morning all his friends heard Bashful Johnny say,

Chorus: 'Oh! Why did I kiss that girl? Why oh why oh why
Oh! Why did I kiss that girl? I could almost cry
I'm nervous so nervous I'm worried and blue
And if her kiss did that what would her huggin' do?
Ma says that I'm a wreck I'll admit she's right
Pa says he'll break my neck. He can't sleep at night
They're upset and all because I ain't like I used to was
Oh! Why did I kiss that girl? Why oh why oh why.'


Bashful Johnny said 'Oh my silly head goes all round and round
Can't stop stuttering my heart fluttering since that girl I found.'
Next night in the square met his Mabel there kissed her lips once more
Ran off home and tried to sleep but all he did was roar,

Chorus: 'Oh! Why did I kiss that girl? Why oh why oh why
Oh! Why did I kiss that girl? I could almost cry
I'm peevish and feverish like folks with the flu
And if her kiss did that, what would her huggin' do?
I'm going off my head you should hear my screams
All night I lie in bed dreaming awful dreams
Talk about 'Loves Old Sweet Song' that's alright but I'm all wrong
Oh! Why did I kiss that girl? Why oh why oh why.'
