Tarquin was an ungrateful butler,

His Master, kindly,

His Master, wrong crowd,

His Master, unlucky,

His Master, impoverished,

His Master, unable to pay,

His Master, begging,

His Master, decapitated,

His Master, mutilated,

His Master, buried,

His Master, long gone,

His Mistress, next,

Tarquin was an ungrateful butler.
