Though at first she refused very coldly, How long can a lady resist? How long can a lady resist? She said "No!", I said "Please!", She said "No!", I said "Please!", She said "No!", I said "Please, pretty baby!" She said "No!", I said "Why?", She said "No!", I said "Why?", She said "No!", I said "Try!", She said "Maybe!". I said "Now?", she said "Well!", I said "Ah, this is swell!", And the way she looked at me was a crime! And at last, you can guess, She said "Yes yes yes yes yes!", Words she really meant to say all the time! [Helen O'Connell] I said "No!", he said "Please!", I said "No!", he said "Please!", I said "No!", he said "Please, pretty baby!", I said "No!", he said "Why?", I said "No!", he said "Why?", I said "No!", he said "Try!", I said "Maybe!". He said "Now?", I said "Well!", He said "Ah, this is swell, And you'll never know how much it will mean; So at last, confess!", I said "Yes yes yes yes yes!", That's how I subscribed to Liberty magazine!
