The newest Ireak of fashion,
The latest fad in dress,
May rouse some angry passion
Or cause mere man distress;
It may arouse his laughter
Or move his tongue to scorn,
But women follow after
The fad and it ia worn,
And then, somehow, no matter
NHow queer it seemed, how odd
The sight of it will shatter
Our hatred of the mode; -
The hbbble skirt or harem,
All pW in blithe review;
We thought we couldn't .bear 'em,
And ye$ and yet we datr .
For when the ladfes'don it,
No matter whaftthe fad,
We gaze again upofl it
And find it not sp bad.
And so in. town, and city
, We look;, and thenj declare
JThaU pretty girls are pr&ly,
No matter what they wear!
