Was so wide awake; , " ,
A fumbling and roaring . J
Soon came to their ears
A noise that would follow them.
All - through their years.

"Oh, John dear, I fear that
My poor heart -will break.
Unless you will promise -That

For we know that 'tis true.
That folks always call Bath
When there's plumbing to do."
