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,
