Broadside ballad entitled 'Don't Let Us Be Strangers'
DON'T LET US BE
This Popular Song can always be had at the Poet's Box,
I hate to be unsociable with anyone I meet,
Don't let us be strangers as long as we're together'
I'm fond of girls' society, and when the dears I see,
And even when they're proud or shy, I'm sure to say,
I hate to stand and drink alone, and want while I've
So many a time I've said to men I ne'er before did see,
Now let me give you this advice wherever you may be
Civility costs nothing, and you'll find out in the end,
When I appear before you 1 can never stay so long,
