    This pig went to market,
    That pig staid at home;
    This pig had roast meat,
    That pig had none;

    What did I do, sonny, in the Great World War?
    Well, I learned to peel potatoes and to scrub the barrack floor.
    I learned to push a barrow and I learned to swing a pick,
    I learned to turn my toes out, and to make my eyeballs click.

    COME all ye lads and lassies and listen to me a while,
    And I-ll sing for you a verse or two will cause you all to smile;
    It-s all about a young man, and I-m going to tell you now,
    How he lately came a-courting of the Maid of the Sweet Brown Knowe.

Thomas Moore Poem
Lay His Sword By His Side
 by Thomas Moore

Lay his sword by his side -- it hath served him too well
Not to rest near his pillow below;
To the last moment true, from his hand ere it fell,
Its point was still turn'd to a flying foe.
Fellow-labourers in life, let them slumber in death,
Side by side, as becomes the reposing brave --
That sword which he loved still unbroke in its sheath,
And himself unsubdued in his grave.
