LUBIN'S RURAL COT.
Returning home across the plain from market the other day,
A sudden Mono of wind and rain o'ertook me by the way;
With speed I tripped o'er the plain to find some kinder spot,
And from the storm a shelter found in Lubin's rural cot.
In Lubin's rural cot, in Lubin's rural cot,
And from the storm a shelter fouud in Lubin's rural cot.
The swain had long possessed the flame which modesty concealed,
And till these favored moments came his passions ne'er revealed;
Will you consent, fair maiden, said he, to share my humble lot,
Return my love and mistress be of Lubin's rural cot!- Chorus.
He spoke so fair, it pleased my mind: I blushing answered yes;
He swore he would prove true and kind, and sealed it with a kiss.
Next day the wedding-ring was brought, I all my fears forgot,
And bless the day I shelter found in Lubin's rural cot.- Chorus.
