"The Old Sow's Hide"

       
  1. What shall we do with the old sow's hide?
Make a good cushion as ever did ride.
Course cushion, fine cushion, any such a thing,
the old sow died of the measles in the spring!
 
 
2.
What shall we do with the old sow's feet?
Make a good pickles as ever was eat.
Course pickles, fine pickles, any such a thing,
the old sow died of the measles in the spring!
 
  3. What shall we do with the old sow's meat?
Make a good bacon as ever was eat.
Course bacon, fine bacon, any such a thing,
the old sow died of the measles in the spring!
 
  4. What shall we do with the old sow's tail?
Make a good whip as ever did sail.
Course whip, fine whip, any such a thing,
the old sow died of the measles in the spring!
