Umbrellas are no use said John,
The water is knee deep;
When Ned turned his right upside down,
And in it he did leap.
Then sailing down the road he went;
In his Umbrella boat;
well done Ned, the neighbors' said,
You're the best Man afloat:
And on he went, while with his Cane,
He steered along the road;
So the Umbrella that you take,
Can take you for its Load.
