Musquito Song.

In a summer’s night I take my flight,

Musquito

To where the maidens repose;

And while they are slumbering sweet and sound,

I bite them on the nose.

The warm red blood that tints their cheeks

To me is precious dear,

For ‘tis my delight to buzz and bite

At this season of the year.

On the chamber wall about I crawl,

Till the landlord goes to bed;

Then my bugle I blow, and down I go,

To light upon his head.

Oh, I love to see the fellow slap,

And I laugh to hear him swear;

For ‘tis my delight to buzz and bite

In this season of the year.

From Peter Parley’s Thousand & One Stories of Fact & Fancy, Wit & Humor, Rhyme, Reason, & Romance, Illustrated by Three Hundred Engravings. New York: Derby & Jackson, 1859.
