The Pocketbook has money,
On that subject he is daft;
But when one strikes him for a loan
He answers, "I am strapped."

Jack and His Fiddle
"Jacky, come and give me thy fiddle,
If ever thou mean to thrive."
"Nay, I'll not give my fiddle
To any man alive.
'If I should give my fiddle,
They'll think that I've gone mad;
For many a joyous day
My fiddle and I have had."
