Tell Tale Tit
Your tongue shall be slit,
And all the dogs in the town
Shall have a little bit.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
The world goes up and the world goes down,
And the sunshine follows the rain;
And yesterday's sneer and yesterday's frown
Can never come over again, Sweet wife;
No, never come over again.
