tend to

I'd like to be right -
But Nonesuch luck
Corinthians sound
Like a Regency Buck
Lady of Quality?
Admir'd Venetia;
Dance the Cotillion, Frederica?
Wear Sprig Muslin
Faro's Daughter
Cousin Kate,
Lamb to the slaughter
What's the angle
on Bath Tangle?
Cousin Kate or Beauvallet -
I'd take Arabella, any day!
Convenient Marriage, April Lady,
These Old Shades - eh!
That's a re-run of Black Moth
Or so it's said, so don't you scoff!
Take a peep
At the Black Sheep
Give it a whirl,
on Charity Girl,
Devil's Cub -
Ah, there's the rub!
Lady of Quality - does that rate
Above or under, the Tollgate?
Don't forget the Spanish Bride
Oh, and Hero, Friday's Child!
Don't you pester,
read Sylvester
It's more than a match
for Powder and Patch
The Talisman Ring
Has everything
And what about the Corinthian?
A Civil Contract
Under False Colours
And the Foundling -
forget the others
The Conqueror
Is The Grand Sophy
Pistols at Dawn
Not My Lord John
Now Quiet Gentleman
Here's the facts-
Reluctant Widows
Unknown Ajax -
Read their Heyer when they get the itch
And *never* forget which one is which!
