SHE WAS HANDSOME AS A ROSE.

I'll sing to you a song,
And try to please you all;
It's about a yellow charmer,
I met at a fancy ball.
She was handsome as a rose,
Her eyes were black as sloes';
And when upon her I did gaze,
She stole my heart away.

Chorus.
Oh, she was such a charmer!
I had her for a partner!
She was handsome as a rose,
Her eyes were black as sloes';
And when upon her I did gaze,
She stole my heart away.

Now I will her describe
As I met her at the ball:
She'd a boxing glove upon her head,
Meant for a waterfall.
Her waist was tall and slender,
Her feet like a giraffe;
And when she took a promenade,
She made the darkies laugh.-Chorus.

I took her to her home,
And lingered at the door;
Oh! there I felt so happy, as
I'd never felt before.
I asked her mine to be-
She only gave a smile,
But her eyes they pierced me thro' and thro',
I know she'll yet be mine.-Chorus.
