A MERRY-GO ROUND IN THE CHAMPS ELYSEES

HERE all the day long,
Are race-horses for hire,
That never go wrong.
And besides, never tire.
Here all the day long,
Are race-horses for hire.
Who will come for a ride?
Horses, lions, all ready!
Bear or tiger astride,
You shall sit safe and steady.
Who will come for a ride?
Lions, horses, all ready!

Round and round they canter slow—soon they fast and faster go;
Look at Louis, all in white, Gaspard, almost out of sight,
Rose and Mabel side by side;—Bertie watching while they ride.
Dennis waits till they have done,—much too big to join the fun;
Brother Paul, with serious air, minds his little sister Claire,
Thinking if he had a sou, she should have some pleasure too.
