Flow and Pearl

A young lady called Miss Flow
(whose mother I happen to know),
Is a very good girl
(unlike that Miss Pearl).
As all the young gentlemen know!

“You’re a joker”, she said

“You’re a joker”, she said,
Doubling over in laughter.
“If you didn’t laugh
You would cry”
Said I.

And after
I felt proud
That I can still engage
With a girl, half my age
And make her laugh Outloud.

I hear Eliot’s footman snicker.
The stage
Lights flicker
‘Ere the curtain does fall
Covering all.

A Young Lady With A Beautiful Figure

Said, “I will all gentleman’s offers consider.
I am of an ancient profession,
And confess to having no discretion.
But I do have a beautiful figure!”.

Sarah

A young lady whose name is Sarah
Has a reputation as a terrible stirrer.
She’s told everyone about me
And that naughty Miss Leigh.
But, have you heard this about Sarah? …

Express

When a young lady named Miss Bess
Said, “would you like to go express?”.
I said, “you ought to know
That I like to go slow.
Oh, you mean the express train, Bess!”.

When A Young Lady Waving A Gun

When a young lady waving a gun
Said, “I hope you’re up for fun!”.
And I said, “If not,
Then Will I be shot?”.
She said, “Just try it, and run!”.
