Analizationintro (recitative):
     What are mortals made of?
     By analization I've tried all the nation
     Defined each gradation
     In every station
     With Sir Humphry's best new chemical test
     And found what mortals are made of.What are lawyers made of?
Of causes and fees
Demurrers and pleas,
Learned brother and lots of pother
Counsel and jury with very wise looks
Flaw in the indictment and statute books
Such are our lawyers made of,
Such are our lawyers made of,
What are our old maids made of?
What are our old maids made of?
Of thrown away sighs, and crows'feet eyes,
Of sprigs of rue and vinegar too,
Parchment skin and faltering walk,
Chit chat  and slander to talk;
And such are our old maids made of,
And such are our old maids made of.
What are old bacheldores made of?
What are old bacheldores made of?
Of bread and cheese and very weak knees,
Of snivelling nose and rheumatic toes.
Domestic comtort they say is all strife,
But yet in their hearts they all long for a wife
And such are old bacheldores made of,
And such are old bacheldores made of.
What are New Yorkers made of?
What are New Yorkers made of?
Of State House in Park, Broadway in the dark
Of ladies who flash and cut such a dash
The home of the stranger, delight of the brave
Lots of frolic and fashion and brokers that shave.
And such are New Yorkers made of,
And such are New Yorkers made of.
What are Philadelphians made of?
What are Philadelphians made of?
Of dandies and Quakers and Germans and Shakers
Of fine Schuylkill coal and shad by the shoal.
At the mint they make money, Oh lawks, what a pile
And the market it reaches for nearly a mile,
And such are Philadelphians made of,
And such are Philadelphians made of.
A stage number, ca 1830s. Sir Humphry was Sir Humphry Davies,
     inventor of the miner's safety lamp.
