Tom married a wife on Sunday

Melody -

Tom married a wife on Sunday,
Beat her well on Monday,
Bad was she on Tuesday,
Middling was she on Wednesday,
Worse was she on Thursday,
Dead was she on Friday;
Glad was Tom on Saturday night,
To bury his wife on Sunday.

A long-lived type of jest, dating at least from the early 17th century.
