|When youve walked up the Rue la Paix at Paris,|
Been to the Louvre and the Tuileries,
And to Versailles, although to go so far is
A thing not quite consistent with your ease,
Andbut the mass of objects quite a bar is
To my describing what the traveller sees.
You who have ever been to Paris, know;
And you who have not been to Parisgo!

|Prince, give praise to our French ladies|
For the sweet sound their speaking carries;
Twixt Rome and Cadiz many a maid is,
But no good girls lip out of Paris.
