Verse:
Little Miss Cecilia Green, Little over sweet sixteen,
But the cutest flapper that you`ve ever seen.
When the fellows pass her by, She will always wink her eye,
When she talks to them, when she walks with them, This is what they all cry:
 
Chorus:
Does your mother know you`re out, Cecilia?
Does she know that I`m about to steal ya?
Oh my, when I look in your eyes,
Something tells me you and I should get together!
How about a little kiss, Cecilia?
Just a kiss you`ll never miss, Cecilia.
Why do we two keep on wasting time?
Oh, Cecilia, say that you`ll be mine!
