T HERE was a man in double deed, Who sow'd his garden full of
seed; And when the seed began to
grow, 'Twas like a garden full of
snow; And when the snow began to fall, 'Twas like a bird upon the wall; And when the bird away did fly, 'Twas like an eagle in the sky ;
And when the sky began to roar, 'Twas like a lion at the door; And when the door began to crack, 'Twas like a stick across yourback; And when your back began to
smart, 'Twas like a penknife in your
heart; And when your heart began to
bleed, You're dead, and dead, and dead,
To market, to market, to buy a fat pig, Home again, home again, jiggety jig. To market, to market, to bay a fat hog, Home again, home again, jiggety jog.
