My pretty Jane! a watch and chain,
A bracelet or a ring,
I'll buy for you; said Jane, "you'd do
A very foolish thing,
Don't be so rash, but let your cash
Be better spent than that,
Buy me, young manl a Tam O'Shan-,
A Tam O'Shanter hat."

She wears a Tam O'Shanter and a Jersey, too,
With bootses on her tootses, very bright and new;
And very fetching stockings, of a navy blue,
To help the Tam O'Shanter and the Jersey, too.

Her dress, I guess, don't cost her less
Than hundred's ev'ry year,
Or rather me, because, says she,
"I'll let you pay, my dear;"
And I do pay, for ev'ry day
She buys and I am sold;
But bless her heart, she looks so smart,
She's worth her weight in gold.-Chorus.

Miss This, and That, survey the hat, ,
And toss their heads and sneer,
"Oh, what a sight! she is a fright!
Now, don't you think so, dear? "
But well they know it is not so.
They're jealous-ev'ry one-
They know she's queen when she is seen,
They're stars, but she's the sun.-Chorus.

She's to be mine, her form's divine,
As all the world can see;
Her -loveliness, and her tight dress,
Have quite enchanted me;
With waist encased, in charming taste,
The ladies now are seen,
Like old Jack Sprat, they cry, no fat,
Who used to crinoline.-Chorus.
