A Fox May Steal Your Hens Sir

A Fox May Steal Your Hens Sir

A fox may steal your hens, Sir,
A Whore your health and Pence, Sir,
Your daughter rob your Chest, Sir,
Your Wife may steal your Rest, Sir,
A Thief your Goods and Plate,
A Thief your Goods and Plate.
But this is all but picking,
With Rest, Pence, Chest, and Chicken,
If ever was decreed, Sir,
If Lawyer’s Hand is fee’d, Sir.
He steals your whole Estate,
He steals your whole Estate.
