A man with a nickel, 

A sword and a sickle,

A pipe and a paper of pins 

Set out for the Niger

To capture a tiger-- 

And that's how my story begins. 

When he saw the wide ocean, 

He soon took a notion 

'T would be nicer to stay with his friends. 

So he traded his hat For a tortoise-shell cat---

And that's how the chronicle ends!
