Minguillo’s Kiss
Anonymous (Spanish: 18th Century)
 
SINCE for kissing thee, Minguillo,
  Mother’s ever scolding me,
Give me swiftly back, thou dear one,
  Give the kiss I gave to thee.
Give me back the kiss—that one, now;        5
  Let my mother scold no more;
  Let us tell her all is o’er:
What was done is all undone now.
Yes, it will be wise, Minguillo,
  My fond kiss to give to me;        10
Give me swiftly back, thou dear one,
  Give the kiss I gave to thee.
Give me back the kiss, for mother
  Is impatient—prithee, do!
  For that one thou shalt have two:        15
Give me that, and take another.
Yes, then will they be contented,
  Then can’t they complain of me;
Give me swiftly back, thou dear one,
  Give the kiss I gave to thee.        20
