The builder builded a house of brick,
"Twas as sound as sound could be, But the builder himself was out of repair, And a ragged cough coughed he, "Ti3 a wooden suit I'll be wearing soon," Said he, and bis face was door, But he beat the old Reaper in just two hours With Woods' Great Peppermint Cure.
