Before our names were fixed,
As we were being washed by nurse,

My brother John got Christened me,
And I got Christened him.

My footsteps when at school,
And I was always getting flogged,
For John turned out a fool.
Oar close resemblance turned the tide
Of my domestic life,
For somehow my intended bride
Became my brother’s wife.

Absurd mistakes went on;
And when I died, the neighbours came
And buried brother John.
