His charger comes to stand ; The ladies clap their hands with joy-When they see the Blue-Coat Man.

She whispered low in her mother's ear, "I love the Blue-Coat Man."
6.   "O daughter, O daughter,

To leave your kind old mother
And with your Blue-Coat go?"

You know I love you well,
But the love I have for my Blue-Coat Man
No human tongue can tell."
