Like Some Old fashioned 
When Summertime is done -
Seems Summer's Recollec - 
And the Affairs of June

As Cinderella's Bays -
Or little John - of 
Lincoln Green -
Or Blue Beard's

Her Bees have a fictitious Hum - [down]

H B178b

When Orchestra is

The Violin in Baize 
replaced -
And Ear - and Heaven - 
numb -
