  • Little Toodle-de-do was a dandy cock robin, He was tied to his perch, with a yard of blue bobbin; His tail was no bigger than that of a flea, Yet he thought it, the handsomest tail that cou'd [sic] be. Little Toodle-de-do was so proud of his tail, That to show it the better, he hopp'd on a rail; When a hungry Tom Cat jumped over the wall, Swallowed up little Toodle-de-do, tail and all. MORAL. Now all human birds, who are proud of their tails, For although some don't wear them, the moral avails; Whenever you're bragging 'bout this thing and that, Remember poor Toodle-de-do and the cat.
