The Crooked Man


There was once a crooked man,
Who walked a crooked mile,
And spent a crooked six-pence,
To buy a crooked smile,

He crooked a finger deftly,
And crookedly they go,
To crook a world so crookedly,
Crooked in its flow,

The crooks they did explore,
Were crooked by and by,
More crooked than the crooks they carried,
The crooks where were inside,

And crookedly they slid,
Down crooks and vales low,
And played the crook so merrily,
With crookery in the tow,

Alas the crooked man,
Alas his crooked tooth,
Alas the crook he carried,
Alas and whence forsooth,

The crook he carried crookedly,
The crook they played, both gone,
The crooked path lays crookeder,
By eve, or dusk, or dawn.

Aha, oh no! Don't let the rain come down! My roof's got a whole in it and I might drown!

A whole's not a hole, please don't clown!
A roof with a whole won't let you down.
