The Hare and the Hound

The Hare and the Hound Lyrics

A Hound having started a Hare from his form, after a long run, gave up the chase. 

A Goat-herd, seeing him stop, mocked him, saying: "The little one is the best runner of the two." 

The hound replied; "You do not see the difference between us; I was only running for a dinner, but he for his life."
