Tune: Young Jockey stole my Heart away.
This face observe, discerning fair;
Observe each motion debonair;
My Artois buckles when you view,
In shining sable sattin shoe,
You'll say that I'm from top to toe,
A monstrous handsome City Beau.
My humble whisky I despise;
Like Phaeton, I mount the skies;
And, as I drive away like mad,
They all declare that I'm the Lad;
And cry, he's sure, from top to toe,
A monstrous handsome City Beau
