If an a was possibly short or long,

But there came a morning of fear and dread, St. Joles would whisper it right (or wrong); When the Bishop was up and the Saint in bed; If ever an e provoked a doubt,

And all the boys, from bottom to top, St. Joles' Lexicon helped it out;

Instead of bishop, pronounced bishop!Perhaps it wasn't in page and print, -However the guilty class might try, But it hinted a probably friendly hint; They lengthened o, and they shortened i; And often indeed, if I must confess

And the Bishop with righteous anger flames; It was like a sort of a kind of guess. And off he went and he told King James. St. Joles hooray, &c.

St. Joles hooray, &c.

[blocks in formation]

No laws of scholarship harsh and quaint O then King James, in his wrath and ire,
Could ever perplex the useful Saint; Degraded St. Joles to Joles Esquire;
No trouble of mood or gender come, And now to punish the awful crime
But he settled the rule by the rule of thumb; They get up at seven in winter time;
You could toss a penny, and surely know And oft the vowels in prose and song
The way the genitive case would go;

St. Joles' Lexicon tells you wrong ;
For at tails and heads he was clear and true, And if

you
believe

me,

down at play, And it always turned up one of the two! There's always fog on St. Joles' day. St. Joles hooray, &c.

St. Joles hooray, &c.

St. Joles.-2.
