Jenny Kissed Me

Jenny kissed 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 missed me, Say I'm growing old, but add, Jenny kissed me.

Illicit Love. This type concerns an affair or tryst, as in this excerpt from a work by D.H. Lawrence:
