Sweet-Scented Handsome Young Man.
Copyright, 1876, by Sam Devere.

There's a sweet-scented handsome young man in this town,
His name is Theophilus Aristides Brown;
With weak-minded females he's gained some renown,
This sweet-scented handsome young man.
He's a" dainty as a butterfly, and in colors as gay.
And flutters from corner to corner all day;
He's too sweet for anything, that's what the girls say
Of this sweet-scented handsome young man.

He wears a red neck-tie, his complexion is fair,
Straight down from the middle he parts his blonde hair;
He skips o'er the gutter like a thing made of air,
This sweet-scented handsome young man.

There's a few straggling hairs upon his upper lip-
His legs are the size of a two-cent tallow dip;
He looks like a chicken that's just had the pip,
This sweet-scented handsome young man.
If caught in the rain he would surely expire-
Gotten up expressly for girl to admire;
He could jump through a sieve without touching a wire,
Could this sweet-scented handsome young man.-Chorus.

To break the girls' hearts is his object, 'twould seem,
By day it's his hobby, by night it's his dream;
His chief food is sponge-cake, root-beer and ice-cream,
This sweet-scented dainty young man.
Such effiminate young men may all be very fine.
Their attention all clear-headed girls will decline;
I'll be darn'd if he could marry any sister of mine,
No such sweet-scented handsome young man.-Chorus.
