REUBEN AND RACHEL.

Rachel-Reuben, I have long been thinking
What a good world this would be,
If the men were all transported
Far beyond the Northern Sea.
Reuben- Rachel, I have long been thinking
What a flue world this might be.
If we had some more young ladles
On this side the Northern Sea.

Chorus.
Reuben-Too ral loo ral loo.
Rachel-Too ral loo ral.
Reuben-Too ral loo ral loo.
Rachel-Too ral lee.
Rachel-If the men were all transported far beyona the Northern Sea.
Reuben-If we had some more young ladles on this side of the Northern Sea

Rachel-Reuben, I'm a poor lone woman,
No one seems to care for me,
I wish the men were all transported
Far beyond the Northern Sea.
Reuben-I'm a man without a victim,
Soou I think there's one will be.
If the men are all transported
Far beyond the Northern Sea.-Chorus.

Rachel-Reuben, what's the use fooling,
Why not come up like a man *
If you'd like to have a lover,
I'm for life your Sally Ann.
Reuben-Oh, my goodness! oh, my gracious !
Wliat a queer world this would be,
If the men were all transported
Far beyond the Northern Sea.-Chorus.

Rachel-Reuben, now do stop your teasing,
If you bave any love for me,
I was only just a fooling.
As I thought of course you'd see.
Reuben-Rachel, I will not transport you,
But I'll take you for a wife,
We will live on milk and honey,
Better or worse, we're in for life.-Chorus.
