The Frenchman, easy, debonair, and brisk, Give him his lass, his fiddle, and his frisk, Is always happy, reign whoever may, And laughs the sense of mis'ry far away.
Here's to the maiden of bashful fifteen; Here's to the widow of fifty; Here's to the flaunting extravagant quean; And here's to the housewife that's thrifty. Chorus. Let the toast pass, Drink to the lass I'll warrant she'll prove an excuse for a glass!Richard Brinsley Sheridan
A Spring o'erhung with many a flow'r,The grey sand dancing in its bed,Embank'd beneath a Hawthorn bower,Sent forth its waters near my head:A rosy lass approach'd my view;I caught her blue eye's modest beam:The stranger nodded 'How d'ye do!'And leap'd across the infant stream.robert bloomfield
I met ayont the cairney A lass wi' tousled hair Singin'till a bairnie That was nae langer there.Grieve
Adieu, Farewell, it came with a lass, it will pass with a lass.King James V
If thou weren't more a lass than a lad, I'd fell thee this minute, I would; pitiful lath of a crater!emily brontë
A penniless lass wi' a lang pedigree.
Now there once was a lass, and a very pretty lass,And she was an isotope's daughter
I loved a lass, a fair one,As fair as e'er was seen;She was indeed a rare one,Another Sheba queen:But, fool as then I was,I thought she loved me too:But now, alas! she's left me,Falero, lero, loo!george wither
Ever the wide world over, lass, Ever the trail held true, Over the world and under the world, And back at the last to you.rudyard kipling
It's past parsons to console us: No, nor no doctor fetch for me: I can die without my bolus; Two of a trade, lass, never agree! Parson and Doctor!--don't they love rarely Fighting the devil in other men's fields! Stand up yourself and match him fairly: Then see how the rascal yields!George Meredith
I loved a lass, a fair one, As fair as e'er was seen; She was indeed a rare one, Another Sheba queen: But, fool as then I was, I thought she loved me too: But now, alas! she's left me, Falero, lero, loo!george wither
The wind that blows, the ship that goes and the lass that loves a sailor.
But the standing toast that pleased me most Was, "The wind that blows; the ship that goes, And the lass that loves a sailor!"charles dibdin
A glass is good, and a lass is good, And a pipe to smoke in cold weather; The world is good and the people are good, And we're all good fellows together.
Here's to the maiden of bashful fifteen; Here's to the widow of fifty; Here's to the flaunting, extravagant quean; And here's to the housewife that's thrifty. Chorus: Let the toast pass, * Drink to the lass, I'll warrant she'll prove an excuse for the glass.Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Here's a health to the lass with the merry black eyes! Here's a health to the lad with the blue ones!william winter
Pflücke Rosen, weil sie blühn, Morgen ist nicht heut! Keine Stunde lass entfliehn. Morgen ist nicht heut.
Her plates are scarred by the sun, dear lass, And her ropes are taut with the dew, For we're booming down on the old trail, our own trail, the out trail. We're sagging south on the Long Trail, the trail that is always new.rudyard kipling
This lass so neat, with smile so sweet, has won my right good will. I'd crowns resign to call her mine, sweet lass of Richmond Hill.
Behold her, single in the field, Yon solitary Highland lass! Reaping and singing by herself; Stop here, or gently pass!william wordsworth
