WELL, Tom, the Carnival is done.

Let's take a pipe and talk it over.

To germans, parties, balls, and fun

I've been a pretty constant rover.

Those favors hung across my door


Attest the way that I've been spending

My nights, for full a month or more, -

Alas! the jolly season's ending.

That violin so small and thin

I got from Lucy's fairy fingers, -

Ah me! how lightly did we spin,

And what romance around it lingers!

And there's a dainty silk rosette

I had from pretty Lillie Glover, -

She is indeed an arch coquette,
