Here's To The Maiden

Here's to the maiden of bashful fifteen,
Here's to the widow of fifty,
Here's to the flaunting extravagant Queen,
And here's to the housewife that's thrifty.

Let the toast pass, drink to the lass,
I'll warrant she'll prove an excuse for a glass.

Here's to the charmer whose dimples we prize,
Now to the maid who has none, sir,
Here's to the girl with a pair of blue eyes,
And here's to the nymph with but one, sir. chorus

Here's to the maid with a bosom of snow,
Now to her that's as brown as a berry.
Here's to the wife with a face full of woe,
And now to the girl that is merry. chorus

For let 'em be clumsy or let 'em be slim,
Young or ancient, I care not a feather.
So fill a pint bumper quite up to the brim,
And let us e'en toast them together.chorus
