Good people all, of every sort,Give ear unto my song;And if you find it wondrous short, It cannot hold you long. In Islington there lived a man,Of whom the world might say,That still a godly race he ran, Whene'er he went to pray. A kind and gentle heart he had,To comfort friends and foes;The naked every day he clad, When he put on his clothes And in that town a dog was found:As many dogs there be—
and hound,And curs of low degree. This dog and man at first were friends; But, when a pique began, The dog, to gain some private ends, Went mad, and bit the man. Around from all the neighbouring streets The wondering neighbours ran; And swore the dog had lost his wits, To bite so good a man. The wound it seem'd both sore and sadTo every christian eye; And while they swore the dog was mad, They swore the man would die But soon a wonder came to light,That show'd the rogues they lied— The man recover'd of the bite; The dog it was that died.
