Keeps the best Company in Town.
No Mercy shews to Sex or Age.
The Rich, the Poor, the Maid, the Married,
And those who could not walk, were carried.
We bring a harmless Ghost upon the Stage,
Some will perhaps conclude – in hopes of Gain,
We’ve hired the Knocking Spirit from Cock-Lane.
She dares the Sun’s most piercing light,
And knocks by Day as well as Night.
