Have you heard of the wonderful one-hoss-shay,
That was built in such a logical way?
It ran a hundred years to a day,
And then, of a sudden, it�ah, but stay,
I'll tell you what happened without delay.

Scaring the parson into fits,
Frightening people out of their wits,�
Have you ever heard of that, I say?

Seventeen hundred and fifty-five.
Georgius Secundus was then alive,�
Snuffy old drone from the German hive!
That was the year when Lisbon-town
Saw the earth open and gulp her down,
And Braddock's army was done so brown,
Left without a scalp to its crown.
