My Fanny dear, my Fanny dear, And why she's left me ail alone—

To me the day am only night, I cannot work,, I cannot play.

Pd tell her how she grieved mo sore, And broke my heart wid woe and pain !
Oh J cheer up, &c.
Ah ! do not mock me, brudders dear, Wid all your merry laff and glee ;
But let me weep de bitter tear, For life's no bit ob use to me.
Oh I cheer up, &c
