That wak’d the priest all shaven and shorn,
That married the man all tatter'd and torn,
That kiss'd the maiden all forlorn,
That milk'd the cow with the crumpled horn,

That toss'd the dog,
That worried the cat,
That kill'd the rat,

That ate the malt,
That lay in the house that Jack built.

[graphic][ocr errors][subsumed]

This is the horse, and the hound, and the horn, That belong'd to the farmer who sow'd the corn,

That kept the cock that crow'd in the morn,
That waked the priest all shaven and shorn,
That married the man all tatter'd and torn,
That kiss'd the maiden all forlorn,
That milk'd the cow with the crumpled horn,

That toss'd the dog,
That worried the cat,
That kill'd the rat,

That ate the malt,
That lay in the house that Jack built.
