Here are the corrected lyrics, based on the audio file at the Record Lady's web site:

GAL WHO INVENTED KISSIN'
(Charles Orr, Earl Griswold, 1956)

I love the gal who invented kissing. I don't recall her name,
But I do believe that gal should sit high up in the hall of fame.
Until she came along, just think what we were missing!
That's why today I'm shouting "hooray" for the gal who invented kissing.

She taught the fellows how to smooch instead of holding hands,
And she showed them how to steal a kiss like they do in foreign lands.
Until she came along, just think what they were missing!
Love was very nice, but as cold as ice till that gal invented kissing.

She showed the girls how to pucker up and roll their pretty eyes,
And she showed them how to kiss hello and how to kiss goodbye.
Until she came along, just think what they were missing!
They could only cook or read a book till that gal invented kissing.

Mr. Edison he invented the lights, Mr. Bell the telephone,
And Columbus found America. Their names are all well known.
But till she came along, this world had something missing,
And I'm telling you, there was nothing to do till that gal invented kissing.

She patented the kiss of fire and how to kiss goodnight.
On every kind of hug and kiss, she holds the copyright.
And if I had my way, the only thing I'm wishing
Is to make a date, then stay out late with the gal who invented kissing.
