FRANKLIN-SQUARE SONG COLLECTION.
GOOD NIGHT.
R. I would do, I scarcely know what, Gaffer Green, I would go, faith! I hardly know where, I would scatter the chink And leave others to think, If I had but a thousand a year, Gaffer Green! If I had but a thousand a year !
G. But when you are aged and grey, Robin Ruff, And the day of your death it draws near, Say, what with your pains Would you do with your gains, If you then had a thousand a year, Robin Ruff? If you then had a thousand a year ?
R. I scarcely can tell what you mean, Gaffer Green, For your questions are always so queer, But as other folks die,
I suppose so must Ió                      [Ruff?
G. What! and give up your thousand a year, Robin And give up your thousand a year ?
There's a place that is better than this, Robin Ruff, And I hope in my heart you'll go there, Where the poor man's as great, R.             What! though he hath no estate ?
G. Yes, as if he'd a thousand a year, Robin Ruff, G. & R. Yes, as if he'd a thousand a year.
