Alternate Author Name(s): Hay, Mrs.
Subject(s): Teeth; Toothaches

O LOOK not, lady, with disdain!
Nor fill our hearts with ruth;
You still may charm some humble swain,
Although you've lost a tooth!

Thy beaming eyes are black as jet,
And pretty is thy mouth;
No angel ever smiled so sweet,
Before you lost a tooth.

While fondly thus you strive to shine
In all the charms of youth,
Your face and figure are divine,
But O! you've lost a tooth.

Ah! why that angry frown? for shame!
I only speak the truth:
It cannot hurt Eliza's fame
To say she's lost a tooth.

But search some hearts, perhaps you'll find
A greater fault, forsooth;
O! it were well for womankind
Were all their loss a tooth!
