Ring the Bell, Fanny.

44

Music, with Piano Forte Accompaniment, published by Miller & Beacham, Baltimore.

Now, Julius, come, and go with me,
And see the new-made bride,
The prettiest gal, by far, around,
A sitting by my side.
I told her, when I left this morn,
To have the supper early;
The hoe-cake, 'taters, and the corn,
The rice, and nice fresh barley.
Then, Julius, come, go home with me,
And drink a cup of tea.

Chorus.
Ring the bell! oh, ring the bell! oh, ring the bell for me;
Our supper will get cold, my love,
If you don't ring for tea.

I'd ask you all to come to tea,
But the 'partments are too small:
I've only room for two or three —
We cannot seat you all.
Now, Julius is a nice old chap,
And eats but little ever,
And Fanny she will try to do
Her very best endeavor.
Then, Julius, come and go with me,
And drink a cup of tea.

Chorus.
Ring the bell, &c.

45

Oh! since I've married that sweet gal,
I feel so young and fine,
I've left off drinking everything,
Except a little wine.
Now, Julius, it is time to go —
I know that Fanny's waiting;
We've sung so much that we are tired,
And our appetites want baiting.
Then, Julius, come and go with me,
And drink a cup of tea.

Chorus.
Ring the bell, &c.
