MOTHER GOOSE'S MELODIES.                             63
The king of clubs
He often drubs His loving queen and wife;
The queen of clubs
Returns him snubs, And all is noise and strife;
The knave of clubs
Gives winks and rubs, And swears he'll take her part;
For when our kings
Will do such things, They should be made to smart.
The diamond king
I fain would sing, And likewise his fair queen,
But that the knave,
A haughty slave, Must needs step in between.
" Good diamond king,
With hempen string This haughty knave destroy,
Then may your queen,
With mind serene. Tour Royal love enjoy
