“The horn of plenty's blowing, blowing , blowing,
Pompey am a-crowing, crowing, crowing, honey:
Silver streams am flowing, flowing, flowing,
        Golden showers falling down:
        Liza Jane has come to town.
                CHORUS.
        I feel so nice, I tell you Soney:
        Lasses nothing I'm like honey,
        Tickle me, I feel so funny,
        I colaps a-part.
Clouds of glory hanging high,
        And little cherubims are singing in the chorus:
Don't come near me, don't come nigh,
        They're bound for to adore us.
                The horn of plenty's, &c.

Miss Liza's got a baby, baby, baby.
Say Pompey keep that shady, shady, shady honey
She's talking like a lady, lady, lady–
        Golden showers falling down,
        Liza Jane has come to town.
                CHORUS.
        I feel so nice, I tell you, Soney
        Lasses nothing, I'm like honey.
        Tickle me, I feel so funny,
        I colaps a-part.
Clouds of glory hanging high,
        And little cherubins are singing in the chorus:
Don't come near, don't come nigh,
        They're bound for to adore us.
                The horn of plenty's, &c.”
