Broadside ballad entitled 'The Sights of Glasgow'
The Sights of Glasgow.
PRICE ONE PENNY.
This new song, embracing the most principal sights of
and procure copies of his songs.
In this age of wonder, of fashion and delight,
Glasgow is the place of many a funny sight;
There's everything that's winning for the million that is true,
So if you'll pay attention I'll sing 'em unto you.
All you that's fond of novelty come gather round in time,
I' ll lead you first to Argyle Street, so beautiful and gay,
On pastry, watches, German flutes, wax dolls and women's
stays. All you. &c,
Now Buchanan Street for beauty has always borne the sway
Each looking like a Venus rising from the?Crinoline !
Now there's the West-end Park laid out with much display
All you, &c.
Then the statue of our little Queen that's in St Vincent Place
judging by the face ;
By frightening all the gentlemen who stay there late o' nights
You've seen M'Lellan's Gallery of paintings rich and rare,
Then there's brave Nelson's monument that's in your spacious
Where lads and lasses go to court, and boys for fighting keen
Where they murder Shakspere nightly for the very smallest
Now the last place that I'll mention, and it should have been
I'm sure that you all know it, say" No" now if you durst,
you. All you, & c.
