We keep a stylish boarding house,
On the "Greco-Roman "plan,
Our boarders come just when they please,
And go just when they can;
But when the time to eat arrives,
You'll find they all are there,
Waiting for the servant girl
To call out in their ear:

Roast beef, roast pork,
And nice potatoes, too;
And a nice new mystery-
They call it sawdust stew;
And for dessert we have to-day
A dish, 'twill make you cry;
We made it fresh this morning,
And it's called sole-leather pie.

Our boarders are quite numerous,
Their occupations, too;
First on the list comes Doctor Quack,
With cures so sure and true.
And next we have Alfonso Spry,
Considered quite a match,
Whose ear is always open for
This welcome cry to catch:-Chorus.

We have Miss Scraphina Sharp,
A maid of many years.
She has the sweetest tabby cat,
With long and slender ears.
She has a dog, a little bird,
And many other pets;
But when the bell for dinner rings
She drops them all and gets.-Chorus.
