On the coast of France, as I've heard say,
And so with me
I think you 'll agree, As soon as you hear what they did.-We shall see.
Now, I'll wager the wind in an old pair of bellows,
But without any arms !
In the next place, the second young man of the lot
In the third place, the very last man of the lot
Without clothes !
Which the man without legs—at least, so I've heard
Ran after, and picked up!
Why, as fast as the whizz of a rocket,
And put it into his pocket!
Then, worst of all, a boy 'as had'
It’s palpably absurd.”
“ Absurd! Oh, dear no! not at all ;
“A riddle, eh!
A whole month's visit.
What is it?”
“Why, then, I've practised all my lore
Has studied it than me.
Or else, I'm sure, agree.
“ It is, then-now, then, look about!Mind! for the murder's coming out,
Sharp as the snap of trigger ! It is, I think, so GREAT A LIE,
THAT, NEVER MIND HOW HARD YOU TRY,
YOU CANNOT TELL A BIGGER !”
