Kissing ’s no Sin
Anonymous
 
SOME say that kissing ’s a sin;
  But I think it ’s nane ava,
For kissing has wonn’d in this warld
  Since ever that there was twa.
 
O, if it wasna lawfu’        5
  Lawyers wadna allow it;
If it wasna holy,
  Ministers wadna do it.
 
If it wasna modest,
  Maidens wadna tak’ it;        10
If it wasna plenty,
  Puir folk wadna get it.
