A Critical Chronology

FOLLY’S SONG

  • When wedding fiddles are a-playing,
  • Huzza for folly O!
  • And when maidens go a-maying,
  • Huzza for folly O!
  • When a milk-pail is upset,
  • Huzza for folly O!
  • And the clothes left in the wet,
  • Huzza for folly O!
  • When the barrel’s set abroach,
  • Huzza for folly O!
  • When kate eyebrow keeps a coach,
  • Huzza for folly O!
  • When the pig is over-toasted,
  • Huzza for folly O!
  • And the cheese is over-roasted,
  • Huzza for folly O!
  • When sir snap is with his lawyer,
  • Huzza for folly O!
  • And miss chip has kiss’d the sawyer;
  • Huzza for folly O!
