Perfect Kiss

Kissing How-to, 1942  WrongKissing How-to, 1942 Right


Whatever happened to movie romance

Where just one kiss would suffice

Garbo & Barrymore

To send us into a dreamy trance

Oh so naughty but nice

Back then stars of the silver screen

Were mysterious and cool

Bogie & Bacall

They were rarely if ever seen

Outside their studio school

The movie kiss was carefully staged

It’s passion a part of the plot

After a kiss they would get engaged

True love more often than not

James Stewart & Donna Reed

Because we believed that love back then

would last forever more

We expected so much from our leading men

And the perfect kiss was law.
