In A Village
In a village where I've been
They keep their Parson on a Green.
They tie him to a juniper tree,
And bring him currant bread for tea.
A jollier man I've never seen
Than the one on Parson's Green.

"Robert Barnes, My fellow fine,
Can you shoe this horse of mine?"
"Yes, good sir, that I can,
As well as any other man;
There's a nail, and there's a prod,
Now, good sir, your horse is shod."
