" Work Can Be Fun ": Como Proves It On His Shows
 
Kissing Bridge ~ 1953
 
La, La La, La La, La . . .
La, La La, La La, La . . .
Hey Bea!
Hey Margie!
Say, Jerry! Come on an' go with us!
Let's go to the kissin' bridge!
Oh! Great idea Rudy! ( Wow!, Let's go! )
 
To the old kissing bridge, on a cold Christmas day,
Every boy took his girl, for a ride on a sleigh,
And they stopped! And they kissed!
So they always had a very, Merry Christmas!
 
To the old kissing bridge, with it's roof made of wood,
Every old-fashioned wolf, took his red-riding hood!
And they stopped! And they kissed!
And they really had a very, Merry Christmas!
 
La, La La, La La, La La . . .
Whoa! Dobbin!
Whoa there, Dobbin!
Wow! It's might dark in this kissing bridge!
Hey! Hi neighbors! ( Hi! Stranger! )
But if you're with your girl, and it's not Christmas day,
And there's no kissing bridge, an' you don't own a sleigh!
If you stop ?. . . ( Margie, didn't that voice sound familiar? )
 
And you kissed? 
June or January, 
You'll feel merry,
As Christmas!
 
Now, to feel the glow of Christmas,
I can tell you this . . .
There's no better way of sayin'
Merry Christmas,
With a kiss!
 
But if you're with your girl, and it's not Christmas day,
And there's no kissing bridge, and you don't own a sleigh!
If you stop ?. . . ( It makes no difference when! )
And you kissed? ( And kiss and kiss again! )
June or January, 
You'll feel merry,
As Christmas!
 
Gee! We had fun!
We sure did on the kissing bridge! 
Merry Christmas everybody! 
Yeah! Merry Christmas
 
La, La La, La La, La . . .
