Sir Gregory Gigg; or, the city beau. A Favourite Song, in The Son in Law. Sung by Mr. Mills, in the Character of Bouquet, at the Salisbury Theatre. Tune-Young Jockey stole my Heart away. This face observe, discerning fair; Observe each motion debonair; My Artois buckles when you view, In shining sable sattin shoe, You'll say that I'm from top to toe, A monstrous handsome City Beau. My humble whisky I despise; Like Phaeton, I mount the skies; And, as I drive away like mad, They all declare that I'm the Lad; And cry, he's sure, from top to toe, A monstrous handsome City Beau.
- O'Keeffe, John, 1747-1833.
