Kissy-Kissy, little Jappy,
I love you, so please be happy,
    Though your own dear dolly home
    Lies across the rolling foam!

When you nestle on my lappie,
You're my own, my little Jappy,
    With your funny shaven crown,
    Sweetest doll in all the town!

When we go out for a walkee,
How I wish that you could talkee.
    Then perhaps you'd tell me this:
    What's the Japanese for "kiss"?
