And sang to the music merry and quick, Of FINKLE and LYON'S machine.

" Clickóclickóclick-

My work is almost done, Clickóclickóclick

Before I have scarcely begun !

Oh! shame on the girls, I say,

Who now would their duty shirk,

And waste their time in dressing and play,

If THIS is needle work!

"Clickóclickóclick

How the magic needle flies! Clickóclickóclick

I can scarce believe my eyes ! Seam, and gusset, and band,óBand, and gusset, and seam,óI really could almost work asleep, And sew away in my dream!

From the finest piece of tender gauze

To a cloak or a pair of shoes! ClickóclickóclickóAs I watch the merry thing

In fancy oft, within my sight,

To life it seems to spring !

"Oh! men with sisters dear!

Oh! men with mothers and wives!

How should you bless the men who thus

Gladden our precious lives!

Whose genius can make home so bright,-

Who chase our cares away

By making woman's duties light, And turning toil to play!

" Then goóat onceóand get

A machine exactly like mine ; Others are good, but above them all FINKLE AND LYON'S shine;

Buy at 538 BROADWAY,

And you'll get one there so nice, That many a long long day to come You'll be glad of my advice."

With features gladsome and gay,

A lady sat in her pretty boudoir,

Joyfully working away

And sang to the music merry and quick,

Of FINKLE AND LYON'S machine.
