On the Glasgow Steam Boat

Would you know how steam vessels acquired the great name,
That makes coaches lie useless aside?
'Twas by speed of the steamers, but few have such fame,
As the Glasgow the pride of the Clyde.

When citizens for the sea breezes incline,
As they rise on the coast from the tide,
They're surpiz'd when the near done, while they dine,
In the Glasgow the pride of the Clyde.

The library boast many classics of worth,
Which the owners enlightened provide;
Thus each traveller of taste feels at home in a birth, [sic]
In the Glasgow the pride of the Clyde.
