Oh, Sally Brown, oh, Sally Brown,

How could you serve me so,
I've met with many a breeze before,

But never such a blow !

But could not, though he tried ;
His head was turn'd, and so he chew'd

His pigtail till he died.
His death, which happen'd in his berth,

At forty-odd befel :
They went and told the sexton, and

The sexton toll'd the bell.


What is love ? a morning vapour,

Flying from the beams of day. What is love? a midnight taper,

Dying, with the hours away. 'Tis the sigh the infant utters,

Ere it knows the use of breath :

'Tis the moth that gaily flutters

Round the flame that dooms its death.

'Tis the glow-worm's witching glory,

Luring trav'llers in the mire :
'Tis the gossip's goblin story,

Told around a winter fire.
'Tis the dream that haunts our pillows ;

'Tis a castle in the air ;
'Tis the tears of weeping willows

Tears that really never were.
"Tis, oh, 'tis, the rose, in fancy,

In reality the thorn ;
And I've heard a married man say,

'Twas the devil !-by his horn!


Who chose for the motto of her seal,

Forget me not."

Forget thee ?-never!
While all that's lovely—all that's kind
Can live in the retentive mind,
There will recollection find
Thy form with every thought entwin'd

For ever!

Forget thee ?-never !
While summer's crimson-bosom'd rose
Reminds me, lady, but of those
Which on thy blushing cheeks repose ;
Or while the winter's drifted snows
But make my memory's eye behold
A bosom whiter-not so cold-

For ever!

Forget thee?-never!
While thus the changeful seasons gives list.
Remembrance of thy charms that live

For ever!
In an aching heart that knows
Nothing of passion but its woes-

Oh never !
The flower that rears its humble shrine i 1991
Upon rude winter's bed of snow,
Will tell me of that open brow
opfenn winnen

on a Which evernet


I shall doat to think upon ;
Spring will present that smile of thine
In summer's sun that eye will shine ;
And autumin's falling leaf will show
My fading hopes and pleasures gone

For ever.
Believe me, lady, though we sever,
That this fond bosom will “ Forget thee never."

I can't abide


Turkish folk,
Who take your wives by twenty ;
In England one is thought no Joke,

And numbers find it plenty !


In England, true, this plan may do,

And be as good as any;
But all the charms we see in you,

We only find in many !
