Comical Folk

Comical Folk Lyrics

In a cottage in Fife 

Lived a man and his wife

Who, believe me, were comical folk; 

For, to people's surprise, 

They both saw with their eyes, 

And their tongues moved whenever they spoke! 


When they were asleep, 

I'm told, that to keep 

Their eyes open they could not contrive; 

They both walked on their feet, 

And 'twas thought what they eat 

Helped, with drinking, to keep them alive!
