Fortunately, There Have Always Been Bad Girls

From Boing Boing comes a link to fascinating MP3's of recordings made in the 1890's, including one by Miss Beatrice Hart called "I'm a Naughty Girl." A taste of the lyrics:

If some youth with manners free,
Dares to snatch a kiss from me,
Do I ask him to explain?
No — I kiss him back again!

I'm a naughty girl!
You needn't sham;
You know I am!
Rome is in a whirl,
Because they're all afraid
Of this naughty little maid!
Don't'cha wish your maid was naughty like me?

Okay, I added that last part. Still, it's an interesting listen.
