TAVERN IN THE TOWN II
There is a tavern in the town, (in the town) Some months after that I went into a hall,
And there my dear love sits him down, To my surprise I found there on a wall
And drinks his wine 'mid laughter free, A bill in red letters which did my heart gall
And never, never thinks of me. That she was appearing with him.
Farelewl r mutae theat she well, for I must leave withee him.
Fare tee wel,0f o I mus leav theeHe's taught her gymnastics, and dressed her in tights
Do not let this partii< grieve thee To help him to live at his ea se.
And remember thati-the best of friends must part-must part. He'd made her assume a masculine name
Adiepn nrieu kipn T fripids, adipu, He'd made her assume a masculine name
Adieu, adieu kind~friends, adieu, And now she goes on the trapeze- OH!
I can no longs7 stay with you She floats through the air with the greatest of ease
I'11 hang my harp on a weeping willow tree You'd think her a man on the flying trapeze,
And may the world go well with thee. She does all the work while he takes his ease
Ohig my grave both(2d verse) And that's what's become of my love;.
Qh, .ig my grave both wide and deep-'
Put tombstones at my head and feet,
And on my breast carve a turtle dove AFTER THE BALL IS OVER
To signify I died of love (refrain). (chorus)
After the ball is over, After the break of morn-
MAN ON THE FLYING TRAPEZE After the dancers' leaving,-after the stars are gone;
Once I was happy but now I'm forlorn Many a heart is aching, If you could read them all;
Like an old coat that is tatter'd and torn, Many the hopes that have vanish'd- After the ball.
Left in this wide world to fret and to mourn,
Betray'd by a maid in her teens. SHE MAY HAVE SEEN BETTER DAYS
Now this girl that I lov'd she was handsome, SE A HV sNB
And I tried all I knew her to please; (chorus)
But I never could please her one quarter so well She may have seen better days
Like that man on the flying trapeze- OH! Once upon a time;
He flies through the air with the greatest of ease ,Tho by the wayside she fell,
This daring young man on the flying trapeze . She may yet mend her ways-
His movements are graceful, all girls he does please Some poor old mother is waiting for her
And my love he's purloined away. Who has seen better days.
1BR^--t Absolutely NO vinous or distilled liquors
served during the performance.
VIVANT REX ET REGINA!
