GOOD folks, to Lunnun I be come,
Fine sights to see, fine sights, to see ;
Good folks, to Lunnun I be come,
Where things are mortal funny.
Most wond'rous sights you may see here,
Sights that are droll, sights that are queer;
But them to see they charge so dear,
It costs you so much money.

I went to see the Monument,
By Lunnon-bridge, by Lunnun-bridge ;
I went to see the Monument,
And to the top I mounted :
Thinks I the people in this town
Are nation good and righteous grown ;
For churches sure if there is one,
A hundred full I counted. -

The church clocks now are lighted up
With gas at night, with gas at night;
The church clocks now are lighted up, [Note 625.1]
The hour of night exposing:
This plan is sure to answer well,
All watchmen's fears it will dispel,
As it will serve the time to tell
To them when they've been dozing.

One night I went to see the play,
At Covent garden, Covent garden ;
One night I went to see the play,
It was the Moor of Venice :
There was a great black ugly fellow,
His name I think it was Othello,
How he did stamp and rave and bellow
Before the play did finish.

The next place was the Diorama
In Regent's-park, in Regent's-park ; [Note 625.2]
The next place was the Diorama
That I did go to see, sir:
A village by sunshine they show,
The name is Unterseen, I know, [Note 625.4]
To go again not be slow,
It did me greatly please, sir.

For only one thing now I wait,
The new steam coach, the new steam coach ;
For only one thing now I wait,
The invention of one Gurney┬╣ : [Note 625.3]
I'm told it on the road will fly,
All mails and coaches will pass by,
If so its just the thing for I,
When I go back my journey.
Ri tol de rol, &c.
