Let him who is minded to meet with a Glug
Pluck three hardy hairs from a rabbit-skin rug;
    Blow one to the South, and one to the West,
    Then burn another and swallow the rest.
And who shall explain ’tis the talk of a fool,
He’s a Glug! He’s a Glug of the old Gosh school!
    And he’ll climb a tree, if the East wind blows,
    In a casual way, just to show he knows . . .
                Now, tickle his toes!
                Oh, tickle his toes!
And don’t blame me if you come to blows.
