Text

{The Calverton play began:—}

[Mop]

"In comes I with a mop.
If you don't give us ought we will stop

Eezum Squeezum

"In comes I the Eezum Squeezum,
On my back I carry a beasom,
In my hand a whit leather pan.
Don't you think I'm a funny old man?"

Notes

'Ne'er o'er holled [hurled]
And ne'er stuck fast,
We've got our harvest in at last."
