Subject(s): Ghettos; Markets; Supermarkets


In Forsyth Street the peddlers sell you peaches for a penny.
They're big and rich and ripe and cheap; but cheaper far than any
Is Beauty! Oh! it's cheap as cheap, it takes a glance to buy it! --
And if you doubt it come with me to Forsyth Street and try it!
Oh, come, come and try it!
It's cheaper there than any --
In Forsyth Street where peddlers sell you peaches for a penny!

Then let us stand by Litowicz who hawks a miscellany
Of cheapest wares, of plums and pears and peaches for a penny!
For there the Jewish maidens go to spend their money gaily;
And Judah goes at noon, she does, and Judah goes there daily.
Oh, Judah goes there daily!
It's cheaper there than any --
In Forsyth Street where peddlers sell you peaches for a penny!
