WHEN I was a bachelor, I lived all by myself,
* ' And all the bread and cheese I got I put upon the shelf. The rats and the mice they made such a strife, I was forced to go to London to buy me a wife. The roads were so bad, and the lanes were so narrow, I was forced to bring my wife home in a wheel-barrow. The wheel-barrow broke, and my wife had a fall, Down came wheel-barrow, wife, and all.
W HAT shoe-maker makes shoes without leather, With all the four elements put together ? Fire and water, earth and air; Ev'ry customer has two pair.
[A Horse-Shoe.']
