Social satire. Two destitute men in rags in a street: one contemplates leaving town by one of the means advertised on the posters on the wall, saying 'For I must away by tomorrow ah Me ah Me'; the other approaches saying 'You ask a song you bid me sing.'
From an album titled 'Scraps and Sketches of the Late William Anderson Esqr/ collected by his Schoolfellow & Friend William Naylor.'
