Seven Black Friars


Seven black friars, sitting back to back,
Fished from the bridge for a pike or a jack.

The first caught a tiddler,
The second caught a crab,
The third caught a winkle,
The fourth caught a dab,

The fifth caught a tadpole,
The sixth caught an eel,
The seventh one caught an old cart wheel!
