Tom Thumb's Alphabet

Lyrics

A was an Archer,
who shot at a frog;.

B was a Butcher,
who had a great dog;.

C was a 'Captain,
all covered with lace;.

D was a Drunkard,
and had a red face;.

E was an Esquire,
with pride on his brow;.

F was a Farmer,
and followed the plough;.

G was a Gamester,
who had but ill luck;.

H was a hunter,
who hunted a buck;.

I was an Innkeeper,
who dined on grouse,.

J was a Joiner,
who built up a house;.

K was a King,
so mighty and grand;.

L was a Lady,
who had a white hand;.

M was a Miser,
and hoarded his gold;.

N was a Nobleman,
gallant and bold;.

O was an Oysterman,
who went about town;.

P was a Parson,
and wore a black gown;.

Q was a Quack,
with a wonderful pill;.

R was a Robber,
who wanted to kill;.

S was a Sailor,
who spent all he got;.

T was a Tinker,
and mended a pot;.

U was an Usurer,
a miserable elf.

V was a Vintner,
who drank all himself;.

W was a Watchman,
who guarded the door;.

X was Expensive,
and so became poor;.

Y was a Youth,
that did not love school;.

Z was a Zany,
a poor, harmless fool.
