The shabby Looking Nose
Kind friends pray give attention,
I'll try you to amusa
'Tis facts I'm going to mention,
And I hope you'll not refuse,
So with your kind permission,
The facts I will disclose,
Concerning this here feature,
You understand, my nose.


Oh yes, 'tis true,
And natural to suppose,
That naught becomesa man so bad
As a shabby looking nose.

We read that men of learning,
No room there is for doubt,
Have all without exception
Been well supplied with snout,
Now there's the great Napo eon,
His nose was quite a eharm,
And Wellingtons one they tell me
Was longer than his arm.

The tongue the ladies value,
Above each other gift,
And dang me but they use it,
In every other shift,
A long tongue is annoying,
To these that near it be,
The preference I'm showing,
The silent nose for me.

Nom whe r man gets tipsy,
And along the street he goes,
Just think how very useful,
Is full developed nose,
There might be some collision.
His eyes may be knocked out,
But boldly they're defended,
By the all important snout.

But this I just would mention,
You can't be too often told,
In damp and chilly weather,
Beware of catching cold,
The nose should be protected,
As well as is the toes,
And every one in winter,
Should cover up his nose.

Spoken—Something in this style
ladies and gentlemen, (drawing
on a cover ) Something in this style
The nose is a very sensitive part
of the body you know, and good
nerves should be prat cted,
p ti cu y, as they penetrate
much further into the atmosp ere
aud are therefore more udle to
catch cold.

I do not say that this one,
Is as it ought to be,
But I'm proud to say it's better,
Than any here I see,
Too much cheek is a nusance,
Long ears a sad disgrace,
But a full developed smeller,
Is the glory of the face.
