Song from " The School for Scandal"
SONG FROM "THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL"
By Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751-1816)
Here's to the maiden of bashful fifteen ;
Here's to the widow of fifty ; Here's to the flaunting extravagant quean,
And here's to the housewife that's thrifty.
Chorus. Let the toast passó Drink to the lass, I'll warrant she'll prove an excuse for a glass.
Here's to the charmer whose dimples we prize;
Now to the maid who has none, sir ; Here's to the girl with a pair of blue eyes,
And here's to the nymph with but one, sir.
Chorus. Let the toast passó Drink to the lass, I'll warrant she'll prove an excuse for a glasi.
Here's to the maid with a bosom of snow;
Now to her that's as brown as a berry ; Here's to the wife with a face full of woe,
And now to the damsel that's merry.
Chorus. Let the toast passó Drink to the lass, I'll warrant she'll prove an excuse for a glasi.
