“Jack thou’rt a…” “Come, once more,”
“Jack thou’rt…” “Encore, once more,”
“Jack thou’rt…” “I can’t get in,
come now, do you begin,”

“Stop! Who goes the last?”
“That’s wrong, you’re much too fast,”
“I’ll beat: ’tis very plain,
now for it once again,”

“O Sir, you’re quite too low,”
“Hold! You’re now too slow,”
“Oh stay, you’ve got too high,
good Sir, pray let me try.”
