That I Was An English Girl


That I was an English Girl,
You never did suppose;
But I am, and ever shall,
Be only plain Miss Rose.

With Gold and Silver Lace you see
I am dressed like a Greek;
If you know any more of me,
I beg that you will speak.

Italy is my native place,
I dare say you suppose;
You do not guess it by my face,
But only by my clothes.
