After reading the rhyme "Georgie Porgie", I am not sure about the meaning of "Boys at one", is this a synonym of "boys finally were at peace with girls"? Thanks:

"Georgie Porgie, puddin' and Pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry,
Boys at one with girls at peace".

Thanks. "Opie, I., & P. Opie, The Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes, Oxford, OUP, 1997.
