[Verse 1]
Any time want a a little kiss from you
Mother's always in the way;
When our lips begin to pout,
Brother Bill Walk in and out.
Father comes in with a smile and says, "hello,"
Just to spoil our kissing game;
They think they're smart but oh! sweetheart,
We'll fool them just the same.

Meet me at the station,
Where the trains come and go, oh!
Make believe relation,
And I just came in to se the city,
Don't you forget to treat me pretty;
Greet me,when you meet me, like I've been away a year;
We'll kiss "good-byes" and kiss "helloes". With ev'ry train that comes and goes,
So meet me at the station dear.

[Verse 2]
Someone must have told your mother of our scheme,
I think that she's getting wise;
She just told your sister Bess,
To take the long train off your dress,
Daddy said your brother had a brand new job,
Gateman on the B. and O;
The Erie line is twice as fine,
Besides its twice as slow.
