Hark! Hark!

: Boys And Girls Bookshelf

Hark, Hark the dogs do bark!

The beggars have come to town.

Some in rags, and some in tags,

And some in velvet gowns.

Hear, hear, they're drawing near!

Just hark to the tramp of feet!

So haste about, set tables out,

And get them food to eat.

Run, run, the turkey's done!

I hope it is nicely dressed,

For those who shirk and will not work

Are sure to want the best.
