"When a man in black popped in his head,
Like the devil in search of his grub. With " I've come for the man that's deadó
I belong to the Burial-Club!"

Our party rushed out of the room,                 
After breaking the tables and chairs; The old woman snatched up the broom,
And knocked Mister Devil down-stairs 1 We were both taken by the police,
And locked up all night without grub; And then got a twelvemonth apiece,
For defrauding the Burial-Club!
