"'Er pore dear Par." she sez, "'e kept a store";
An' then she weeps an' stares 'ard at the floor.
"'Twas thro' 'is death," she sez, "we wus rejuiced
To this," she sez . . . An' then she weeps some more.

"'Er par," she sez, "me poor late 'usband, kept
An 'ay an' corn store. 'E'd no faults ixcept
'Im fallin' 'eavy orf a load o' charf
W'ich - killed 'im - on the - " 'Struth! But 'ow she wept.

But, 'im took orf so sudden-like, we found

"To think," she sez, "a child o' mine should be

If 'er pore Par 'e 'adn't died," she sobs
