Diana Kitty Annie Maria

This ballad begins: ”Twas in the month of June, when the birds were in full tune, / I first met a charming little creature, / Hey eyes they shone as bright as the twinkling stars at night, / And a kind smile played on every feature.’ A note below the title states that ‘ Copies of this highly popular song can only be had in the Poet’s Box’, (probably Glasgow) and that the sheet cost one penny. A further note mentions that the ballad should be sung to an original tune.for more click here
