With all the fun.
That he had done.
And how at last he went to France,
To teaeh great Bonaparte to dance.

TOM, Tom, the Piper's son,
Stole a pig and away he ran,
The pig was eat, and Tom was beat,
And  Tom  came roaring  down  the
street;
Yes, yes, Tom stole the pig,
And at school they flogg'd his rig.
&
Here's a long" tail'd pig,
Or a short tail'd pig.
Or a pig without a tail,
A boar pig, or a sow pig,
Or a pig with a curley tail.

This man makes pigs of paste and
fills their bellies with currants, and
places two little currants in their
heads for eyes ; so while the man set
down the basket to sell a little Miss a
curley taii'd pig, Tom ran away with
a long taiFd pig: but he would not
have stolen it, if he had known what
sauce he should have had to it,
For he was beat m the street, anil
whipped at school, and made to beg
pardon on his marrow-bones, and promise never to steal any thing again,
thus after the sweet-meat of stealing
he got the sour sauce of correction.

TOM, THE PIPER S SON.
Tom he was a piper's son,
He learned to play while he was young,
All the tunes that he could play,
Was over the hills and far away.
Tom with his pipe then made such a
noise,
Pleasing the old, the girls and the boys,
They'd dance and sing while he did
play,
Over the hills and far away.

Now Tom after this, learn'd to play
with such skill,
Tljat whoever heard him could never
stand still;
As soon as he play'd they  began for
to dance,
JS'en pigs on their hind legs did after
him prance.
As Dolly was milking her cow oneday,
Tom took out his pipe and began for
to play ;
The cow danc'd,  and Doll danc'd,  a
merry go round,
Till the pail it was broke and the milk
on the ground.
 10
TOM, THE PIPER S SON.
He met old Dame Trot with a basket
of eggs,
He used his pipe and she used her legs,
She danced about till her eggs were
all broke,
Then he left her to fret,   while he
laugh'd at the joke.
TOM, THE  PIPER S SON.

Tom saw a cross fellow who was beating an ass,
Heavy laden with pots, pans, dishes,
and glass,
He played them a jig, and they danc'd
to a tune,
That the load of the jackass was
lightened soon.
 12
TOM,  THE  PIPERS SON,
Once a Dog got a sow   fast hold   by
the ear,
The   sow   squall'd   out murder,   and
Tom being near,
He play'd them a tune, and they  did
not dance bad,
Considering the little experience they
had.
fOM, THE PIPER'S SON.

Tom met with a Parson in a sad dirty-
place,
Where he made him to dance he had
so little grace^
He danc'd in the dirt, till he danc'd
in a ditch,
Where he left him in mud quite up to
the breech,

15
Some little time after, Tom slept on
some hay,
The very same Parson was passing
that way,
He took poor Tom's pipe and bid him
prepare,
To answer his crimes before the Lord
Mayor.
To the Lord Mayor he took him, and
told Tom's art,
To make people dance with a sorrowful heart,
Begg'd he'd send him to sea, where he
might teach a dance,
To  the  great  Bonaparte,  the First
Consul of France.
 16
TOM, THE PIPER'S SON,
Says   Tom,   I   am   willing  to  fight
against France,
First give   me  my  pipe,   I'll teach
Boney a dance.
They gave him his pipe, he began for
to play,
And  the   Parson  and   Mayor  went
dancing away.
