180 Songs That Every Child Should Know
While so sweetly the harmonies twined them, Master Charley followed behind them; Now the People's Gate he reaches, And he takes a reef in his breeches.
See him look here! see him look there!
Oh, what a beautiful, beautiful square!
Soon the Palace of Fiani he's sighting, And he meets the doggies a-fighting, And he runs in such a flutter That he stumbles in the gutter,
Crying for help! Oh, his fine togs!
Into the gutter he 's thrown by the dogs!
Nelly Bly
This is one of those pseudo "negro songs" which attained great popu­larity about i860. It is representative of the American street song of that time.
Stephen C. Foster.
