Fried potatoes is a dishGood as any one could wish:Cheap it is, and appetizing;Turn a saint to gormandizing:Good and cheap and tasty too,Just the thing for Love's Menu.

Love is dainty, and his food,Even though common, must be good:Love hath little to disburse,So his fare must fit his purse:Love hath fickle appetite,We his palate must invite:Crisp and hot, the price a sou,Fried Potatoes, Love's Menu.
