Notes

Here's a slightly different version from Harry's Ladder to Learning (1850):

A little boy and a little girl
Lived in an alley.
Said the little boy to the little girl,
"Shall I? oh, shall I?"
Said the little girl to the little boy,
"What will you do?"
Said the little boy to the little girl,
"I will kiss you."
