A dog and a cock|
A journey once took,
They travelled along till 'twas late;
The dog he made free
In the hollow of a tree,
And the cock on the boughs of it sate.
The cock, nothing knowing,|
In the morn fell a-crowing,
Upon which comes a fox to the tree;
Says he, "I declare
Your voice is above
All the creatures I ever did see.
"Oh, would you come down,|
I would hug you, my own!"
Said the cock, "There's a porter beneath;
If you'll ask his advice,
I'll come down in a trice!"
So he did, and was worried to death.
