A Collection of English Poems, 1660-1800

By Ronald S. Crane | Go to book overview

For then I'm dress'd, all in my best,
To walk abroad with Sally; 30 She is the Darling of my Heart,
And she lives in our Alley.

My Master carries me to Church,
And often am I blamed,
Because I leave him in the lurch, 35 As soon as Text is named:
I leave the Church in Sermon time,
And slink away to Sally;
She is the Darling of my Heart,
And she lives in our Alley. 40

When Christmas comes about again,
O then I shall have Money;
I'll hoard it up, and Box and all
I'll give it to my Honey:
And, would it were ten thousand Pounds, 45 I'd give it all to Sally;
She is the Darling of my Heart,
And she lives in our Alley.

My Master and the Neighbours all
Make game of me and Sally; 50 And (but for her) I'd better be
A Slave and row a Galley:
But when my seven long Years are out,
O then I'll marry Sally!
O then we'll wed and then we'll bed, 55 But not in our Alley.


JOHN BYROM

Epigram on the Feuds between
Handel and Bononcini1

SOME say, compar'd to Bononcini,
That Mynheer Handel's but a Ninny;
