Her broder Jim was an eel-butcher, Which caused his mammy to sigh;
Her broder Bill got drunk one day, And run a knot-hole in his eye 1 Den fare you well, etc.
Her lover gave a ball one night—
He gave a fancy ball and sup; Dey had cream-o'-tartar tarts,
And chestnut-burrs in a cup: Dey had E-flat bugle, jelly-soup,
And butter strong enough to walk; It come o'er here in an emigrant-ship,
Oh, all de way from Cork.
• Den fare you well, etc.
BRYAN O'LINN.
