The Dandy's Perambulations

The Dandy's Perambulations, printed and sold in 1819 by John Marchall in Fleet Street, is posted in full by Below are a few lines from the pamphlet:

[They] ran along together straight,
Until they reached the turnpike gate,
Where a coach had made a stop;
So they both got upon the top,
And after their disastrous falls,
At length in safety reached St. Paul’s.

Find a fairly cynical definition of a dandy on this Cambridge University Press site.
