226 THE LASS OF THE PAMUNKY.
THE LASS OF THE PAMUNKY.
YOUR "glens" and "groves" I ne'er admired,
And O your "broom" and " birks," they pall • so! Of Burn sides (all but one) I 'm tired,
And of your " bonny lasses," also. The man that sings the " Banks of Doon,"
And braes — I hold him but a donkey ; My heart beats to another tune,
And that's the Banks of the Pamunky.
For that famed " Lass of Pattie's Mill "
I would n't give one nickel penny ; Of " Nannies " we 've quite had our fill,
Of " Peggies " and of " Jessies " many ; Ditto the " Lass of Ballochmyle,"
All set so tediously to one key; Suppose we try a different style,
And sing the Lass of the Pamunky !
Then sin<r no more the " Banks of Cree," Or" Afton's " green and softly rounded,
But sing the steamer on the P---------,
Where they took me when I was wounded.
