Other 'floating' verses from "She was poor..."

See him in the grand theatre
Eating apples in the pit
While the poor girl what he ruined
Wanders round in mud and filth

It's the same the whole world over &c.

See her staning in the gutter
Selling matches, penny a box
He got riches from his marriage,
She's got an awful dose of 'flu

Then there came a wealthy pimp
Marriage was the tale he told,
She had no one else to take her
So she sold her soul for gold


In a little country cottage
There her sorrowing parents live:
Though they drink the fizz she sends them,
Yet they never will forgive.


Any use?
