A Beetle Once Sat on a Barberry Twig

Lyric:

A beetle once sat on a barberry twig,

And turned at the crank of a thingum-a-jig.

Needles for hornets, nippers for ants,

For the bumblebee baby a new pair of pants,

For the grizzled old gopher a hat and a wig,

The beetle ground out of his thingum-a-jig !
