4. He is a gallant soldier;
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."

How can you treat me so,

And with your Blue-Coat go?"
7. "0 mother, 0 mother,
You know I love you well,
But the love I have for my Blue-Coat Man
No human tongue can tell."
