Lyrics: Anonymous.
Tune: “Sing a Song of Sixpence.”


“Sing a song o’ swindle
Safe full of stocks;
The man who tends the spindle
Going without socks!

“The loafer in his parlor
Counting up his gold;
The worker in his garret
Perishing from cold!

“See him in his mansion!
Man of might and means,
Who never knew the earning
Of one poor pot of beans!

“Yonder man is toiling
From dawn to dewy eve,
Two-thirds of his earnings
Go to fatten thieves!”
