Though I'm what is called "a swell," I'm without a care,
Often taking, to keep well, plenty of fresh air;
From a pleasaut country side I've just come away,
Where I met a charming bride, all amoug the hay.

Spoken-Yes! there's no mistake about it, I made up my
mind and portmanteau at once, took a cab to the railway station,
And with a first-class express ticket, soon found myself-

All among the hay, lads, all among the hay,
Talking to a pretty girl upon n Summer day;
All among the hay, lads, all among the hay,
Can't you have a jolly spree when all among the hay!

She's of bonny girls the queen, born to be admir'd;
Roaming out one day I'd been, feeling rather tired;
When, as graceful as a fawn, she stood in my way,
With a cask of "barleycorn," all among the hay.
All among the hay, lads, all among the, &c.

Of the beer I had a sup, feeling then "all right,"
She said, "to the brimming cup I was welcome quite."
But she soon did me astound, begged I'd go away;
"Rakes," she said, " were often found, all among the hay."
All among the hay, lads, all among the, &c.

Still, for all that I could see, she was shamming cold;
"Bought off" she should never be, I would not be "sold;"
Bouncing came a rival raw, but I made him " pay,"
Thrash'd him like a load of straw, all among the hay.
All amoug the hay, lads, all among the, &c.

Still I press'd, and she " gave in." owning she was wrong­He's no man that cannot win woman with his tongue;
Soon the bells will peal their notes, on our wedding-day,
Then I'll sow my wildest oats, all among the hay.
All among the hay, lads, all among the, &c.

-A little boy astonished his companions the other day, by
telling them that he had "a spanking team at his house." An
excited crowd of boys had walked nearly home with him, when
one of them asked: " What d'ye call 'em? " " Pa and ma." was
the reply.
