To Thomas Atkins

by
 I have made for you a song
 And it may be right or wrong,
But only you can tell me if it's true.
I have tried for to explain Both your pleasure and your pain, And, Thomas, here's my best respects to you! O there'll surely come a day When they'll give you all your pay, And treat you as a Christian ought to do; So, until that day comes round, Heaven keep you safe and sound, And, Thomas, here's my best respects to you!
