Farewell now to Stonetown, adieu to sweet Lowertown
Likewise to my old home - dear me! it is hard!
The neighbours me pity - but that wont make Kitty,
To Ever again give a drop to the Bard.

Although she departed - my wife she desarted
I'm now broken hearted, fate has turned a card
But what need I talk I'm not able to walk
Dear knows its no (mock) "mawk" what has happened the bard.
