I have read some forty dozen yarns like that of “Number One,”
About the tearful person who’s been taken in and done!
Yes, the chap that’s badly treated, HE is always standing round:
Where the dickens is the other, he that never can be found?
YOU have never met a party telling yarns like this, you see:
“I turned dog on poor old Johnson, who was very kind to me.”
No; the victim’s always handy—he is always to be seen—
Where’s the other blessed bounder, he who does the thing that’s mean?
