Iol., Queen, & Phyl.

Though as a general rule we know
Two strings go to every bow,
Make up your minds that grief 'twill bring,
If you've two beaux to every string.


Though as a general rule, &c.

Ld. Chan.

Up in the sky,
Ever so high,
Pleasures come in endless series;
We will arrange
Happy exchange—
House of Peers for House of Peris!


House of Peers for House of Peris!

Ld. Chan., Mount., & Toll.

Up in the air, sky high, sky high,
Free from Wards in Chancery,
I/He will be surely happier, for
I'm/He's such a susceptible Chancellor!


Up in the air, &c.
