And he learned the fact that as a rule,
No mending is done without a tool,
And he carried his horse to a carpenter,
Who said, “I’ll mend it, my little sir.”
And really he mended the head so well
That the broken place you could hardly tell,
And proud as a lord was gallant Ned
Who mounted his hobby-horse and said,
“You never could mend a live horse’s-head,
So I’ll keep my wooden one instead.”

“Away He Run”

Stole a pig, and away he run;
The pig was eat,
And Tom was beat,
And Tom ran crying down the street.
