A was an Archer

Written by: Unknown, Copyright: Unknown

A was an Archer, who shot at a frog,
B was a Butcher, and had a great dog.
C was a Captain, all covered with lace,
D was a Drunkard, and had a red face.

E was an Esquire, with pride on his brow,
F was a Farmer, and followed the plough.
G was a Gamester, who had but ill-luck,
H was a Hunter and hunted a buck.

I an Innkeeper, who loved to carouse,
J was a Joiner, and built up a house.
K was King William, once governed this land,
L was a Lady, who had a white hand.

M was a Miser, and hoarded up gold,
N was a Nobleman, gallant and bold.
O was an Oyster girl, and went about town,
P was a Parson, and wore a black gown.

Q was a Queen, who wore a silk slip,
R was a Robber, and wanted a whip.
S was a Sailor, and spent all he got,
T was a Tinker, and mended a pot.

U was a Usurer, a miserable elf,
V was a Vintner, who drank all himself.
W was a Watchman, and guarded the door,
X was Expensive, and so became poor.

Y was a Youth, who did not love school,
Z was a Zany, a poor harmless fool.
