The Bold Dragoon.

There was an ancient fair. O she lov’d a nate young man,
And she could not throw sly look at him, but only through her fan,

She had a rolling eye, its fellow it had none,
Would you know the reason why, it was because she had but one;

Now he was tall and thin, she squab and short was grown,
He looked just like a mile in length, and she like a mile stone;

Soon he led unto the church the beauteous Mrs. Flinn,
Who a walnut could have crack’d between her lovely nose and chin

A twelvemonth scarce had passed, when he laid her under ground,
Soon he threw the onion from his eyes, and touch’d ten thousand
