“Short Time, Come Again No More.”
(From A Street Broadside.)
OF this song of four verses, the first will suffice to indicate its character. It is a sort of parody on a well-known song:-
Let us pause in life’s pleasures, and count its many tears,
While we all sup sorrow with the poor;
There’s a song that will linger for ever in our ears,
Oh, short time, come again no more!
It’s the song of the factory operatives,
Short time, short time, come again no more;
For we can’t get our cotton from the old Kentucky shore;
Oh, short time, short time, come again no more!
