Sweet Fanny! the Bus is half frantic
To find you so long in a fix;
You make us as cross as two sticks.

And we with your staying away.

Concocted the airy debate.

Or who's to attempt the Cachucha ?
Shall our bouquets in thunder-showers cover,
With leaves smothered over and over.
We sit, like a legion of mopers,
Those terrible long legs of COPERE's!
To show us how wilsul an elf ye are,
Anú fill with your fame Philadelphia.

Hold up their white kids for Cerito!
