I'll' fix the whole thing up, Your lives with joy to cheer; That is, if you will stay With me another year."

A Lost Love. BY MASTER FUDDLETOP. In my garret I sit sadly, Dreaming of that fairy form, For I loved my darling madly, Yes, that loved one whom I'd gladly Shelter through life's bitter storm. But her promises are broken, I'll ne'er lead her to the church; And I think of each love token, And the cruel words she's spoken, "Old man,'er off yer perch."
