As on his beat the bobby tramps
He often comes a cropper,
Because of his spasmodic cramps;
This most unlucky copper.
His cough and asthma warn the thief
Engaged upon thieving,
Alas, Poor robert, to his grief!
Only arrests his breathing.
And so, although, we need not fear
That Robert’s going to collar us,
Copper’s the remedy,it’s clear
For Asthmas, cramps and choleras.
