The Funny Hatter
Harry was a funny man, Harry was a hatter;
He ate his lunch at breakfast time and said it didn’t matter.
He made a pot of melon jam and put it on a shelf,
For he was fond of sugar things and living by himself.
He built a fire of bracken and a blue-gum log,
And he sat all night beside it with his big — black — dog.
