I must say, I thought rather rude; Rather rude, so I did; Which, 1 must say, I thought rather rude. However, said I, when I'm once in my teens, They'll sure cease to worry me then ; But as I grew older, so they grew bolder — Such impudent things are the men, Are the men, are the men, Such impudent things are the men. But of all the bold things I could ever suppose, (Yet how could I take it amiss?) Was that of my impudent cousin last night, AVhen he actually gave mo a kiss, Ay, a kiss, so he did ; When he actually gave me a kiss. I quickly reproved him, but ah, in such tones, That ere we were half through the glen, My anger to smother, he gave me another — Such strange, coaxing things are the men, Aro the men, are the men, Such strange, coaxing things are the men! .—. # ■ Love is like a little bee, Bearing honey joyfully; But the bee it...

Reach a hand, oh, Hessie, help me! Cease thy giggle and look here; Notice this great pile of garments Thou and I alone would wear. Though my torn and faded dresses Lose their blackness more and more, And my well-worn shawl and stockings Tell bow war has made me poor; Though no glittering silks are with them, Craved by every woman's will— I must mend, and change and alter, Dye my Sunday garments still. Let not Fashion's heartless daughters Mock this crape—this "garb of woe,'' 'Twas no woman's hand that tore it — 'Twas a Y-inkee that tore it so. Haste, then, Hessie, bring your dresses ; Erst, like mine, they were, and gaj ; Throw them into this big kettle, They're too good to throw away.
