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!
