Now it is definitely known that Prince George (reputed to be the second best-dressed man in the world, and admitted to be the handsomest of the Royal princes) is coming to Australia for Victoria's Centenary, there is a fluttering in feminine dovecotes throughout the country.
Prince Charming is coming; The girls are agog; The dovecotes are humming; With minds in a fog Of doubts and distresses. The girls are aglow, They are planning new dresses, And waving their tresses, While each one confesses She dotes on him so. Prince Charming comes hither; The girls are agape; And, all of a dither, They ponder the shape Of lips and of noses -- The girls are agleam. And with postures and poses Each maiden discloses Her fancy supposes A long-cherished dream. Prince Charming approaches; The girls are, again, With gay fairy coaches And fairy tales vain, Employing their fancy -- For day-dreams are cheap. So Nora and Nancy Invoke necromancy Lest somewhere perchance he Find Beauty asleep. Prince Charming is coming; The girls are agreed That, in the last summing, He's handsome, indeed: But Dora and Daisy (With arrogant stares) And Mabel and Maisie Drive common men crazy With suddenly hazy Superior airs.
