The Man Who Had Naught

There was a man and he had naught,
And robbers came to rob him;
He crept up to the chimney pot,
And then they thought they had him.

But he got down on t'other side,
And then they could not find him;
He ran fourteen miles in fifteen days,
And never looked behind him.

Do Diddle Di Do

Do diddle di do, Poor Jim Jay
Got stuck fast, In Yesterday.
Squinting he was, On cross-legs bent,
Never heeding, The wind was spent.

Round veered the weathercock, The sun drew in
And stuck was Jim, Like a rusty pin....
We pulled and we pulled, From seven till twelve,
Jim, too frightened, to help himself.

But all in vain. The clock struck one,
And there was Jim, A little bit gone
At half past five, You scarce could see
A glimpse of his flapping Handerkerchee.

And when came noon, And we climbed sky-high,
Jim was a speck Slip--slipping by.
Come tomorrow, The neighbours say,
He'll be past crying for; Poo Jim Jay.
