    Miss Flora McFlimsey of Madison Square,
    Has made three separate journeys to Paris,
    And her father assures me each time she was there
    That she and her friend Mrs. Harris . . .
    Spent six consecutive weeks, without shopping
    In one continuous round of shopping,-- . . .
    And yet, though scarce three months have passed since the day
    This merchandise went on twelve carts, up Broadway,
    This same Miss McFlimsey of Madison Square
    The last time we met was in utter despair
    Becasue she had nothing whatever to wear.

Be hung with gaudy trappings, in what course
Yea, rags most beggarly, they clothe the soul.

Dresses for breakfasts, and dinners, and balls.
Dresses to sit in, and stand in, and walk in;
Dresses to dance in, and flirt in, and talk in,
Dresses in which to do nothing at all;
Dresses for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall;
All of them different in color and shape.
Silk, muslin, and lace, velvet, satin, and crape,
Brocade and broadcloth, and other material,
Quite as expensive and much more ethereal.

He will come to her in yellow stockings, and 'tis a color she
abhors, and cross-gartered, a fashion she detests; and he will
smile upon her, which will now be so unsuitable to her
disposition, being addicted to a melancholy as she is, that it
cannot but turn him into a notable contempt.
