And lovely Kate, poor Ned's delight,
Chief mourner of the train,
Cried, as she view'd the dreadful sight,
“He'll never march again!"


YOUNG Verdict was a lawyer gay,
And of our town surpassed all;
He went one evening to the play,
And fell in love with Mrs. Hall.

But wicked men will oft' betray—
Attorneys do it worse than all;
For when he fix'd the wedding day,
He ran away from Mrs. Hall.

Therefore, I pray, a warning take,
You widow ladies, great and small
Lest in the grass you find a snake,
As was the case with Mrs. Hall.


SHOULD auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?
