COMICAL FOLK

Comical Folk
  In a cottage in Fife
  Lived a man and his wife
Who, believe me, were comical folk;
  For, to people’s surprise,
  They both saw with their eyes,
And their tongues moved whenever they spoke!

  When they were asleep,
  I’m told, that to keep
Their eyes open they could not contrive;
  They both walked on their feet,
  And ’twas thought what they eat
Helped, with drinking, to keep them alive!
