Jenny Kiss'd Me


Jenny kiss'd me when we met,

        Jumping from the chair she sat in;

Time, you thief, who love to get

        Sweets into your list, put that in!

Say I'm weary, say I'm sad,

        Say that health and wealth have miss'd me,

Say I'm growing old, but add,

        Jenny kiss'd me.
