The Cork Leg and James' Crinoline.
Tune--Do You Think He Did?"

Jane Julian was the prettiest girl that ever I had seen.
And like other ladies wore an ample crinoline;
I own that I was deeply smitten by her charms,
And I tried every art I could to win her to my arms.

They said her understanding was weak and very queer,
If you look under her crinoline it quickly would appear.

I often had conversed with her, but could discover not.
But what good understanding she had surely got;
Yet strange tales of slander scandal-mongers made appear,
That Julia's understanding was really queer.-Chorus.

I met her at a party invited out to dine,
Where all the ladies did remain to take deserts and wine;
The conversation took a turn upon a witty wagg, Dick C'reggs,
That all had queer understanding that bad got cork legs-Chorus.

Jane Julian she rushed from the room amid loud roars of laughter,
I also started from my seat and instantly rushed after;
I overtook her on the stairs resting on the landing,
And underneath the crinoline saw her queer understanding.- Chorus.

Her legs were two odd fellows, as much as cheese and chalk,
The right leg was a spindleshank, the left a leg of cork;
It struck me queer and comical, her understanding thus to see,
And her cork leg bunged up my love, and also corked up me.-Chorus.
