No watch to tale none to caress I go without time I go needfull of rest Sad is my heart Sorrow is known Because Elize Jane is soon going home No 2
I often wonder why should I Be left alone to weep & cry Why can I not too have a gal Let it be Eliza Jane Sooky or Sal No 3
Tis you Miss Liza Jane I ___
And the only _ love you is a shame & a sin
But oh my dear Liza you dont like the dirt Nor the fellow that works all day in his shirt No 4
Tis useless to weep tis useless to wait I cannot get you I am too late My money is gone my watch is no more With a sad heart I step back for the Gent of Como No 5
Hey Dear Liza Jane I think it is too bad You make my aching heart so sad If you would bestow upon me a secret smile I'd throw down my watch & run half a mile
