Why should the rich despise the poor?
Why should the poor repine ? We all will in a few years more
In equal friendship join. We're much to blame, we're all the same,
This life is made of clay ;
Let's drive dull cares away.
Not render it a curse;
For better or for worse.
A dreary winter's day;
We'll drive dull cares away.
And we are young no more-
Nor grieve that youth is o'er;
And innocently gay, And whilst we're here with friends so dear,
Let's drive dull cares away.

TOM BOWLING.-By Dibdin.
The darling of our crew;
For death has broach'd him too;
His heart was kind and soft ;
And now he's gone aloft.
His virtues were so rare ;
His Poll was kind and fair.
Ah! many's the time, and oft ! But mirth is turned to inelancholy,
For Tom is gone aloft.
Yet shall poor Tom find pleasant weather,
When he who all commands,
The word to pipe all hands.
In vain Tom's life has doff'd,
His soul has gone aloft.

OH, SAY NOT WOMAN'S LOVE IS BOUGHT. Oh, say not woman's love is bought,
With vain and empty treasure;
Oh, say not woman's heart is caught
By ev'ry idle pleasure ;
Love's flame, it wanders never ;
She loves, and loves forever! Oh, say woman's false as fair,
That like the bee she ranges;
As fickle fancy changes.
Will leave her bosom: " !
BANKS AND BRAES O' BONNIE DOON. YE banks and braes o' bonnie Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair? How can ye chaunt, ye little birds,
And I sae werie fü' o' care?
That warble on the flow'ry thorn;
Departed never to return.
To see the rose and woodbine iwine,
As fondly sae did I of mine; Wi' lightsome heart I pu'd a rose,
Sae sweet upon its thorny tree; But my fause love has stol’n the rose,
And left the sharpest thorn to me.
