Oh! I'm a girl that is fond of life,
My age is twenty-one,
I am averse to noise and strife,
But very fond of fun;
And though to vice I'm not inclined,
I like the flattery of mankind,
And always like to speak my mind,
Alike to every one.

For. as through the park I go.
The gents all want to know,
"Who is that darling girl
That drives so fast? they'd like to know.

I live at home with dear mamma,
And do just as I will,
While lovers come from near and far,
And me with nonsense fill;
But I tell them all, I will be a nun,
And beg they will have done.
But then they say, I'm only in fun,
As I laugh behind my fan.

8poken-Well, of course I am in fun sometimes. 'Twas only
the other evening mamma took me to a ball, and bought me this
new dress from Madame Wiutle for the occasion, for mamma
said, I must put on my best smiles and graces, for I was getting
old and it was quite time I was off her hands. Poor mamma, she
always has my iuterest at heart. So after the ball was ever, one
dear young fellow began to address me, and I really thought he
was going to propose, but another gent came in and spoiled it all,
and I've many times heard them both remark:- CHorus.
