Steve Gardham Folklore: Tell tale tit.. (40) RE: Folklore: Tell tale tit.. 15 Oct 21


On close pages of Tommy Thumb's Pretty Songbook Vol 2, 1744 are the following:

p35
Lyer Lyer Lickspit
Turn about the candlestick
Whats good for Lyars
Brimstone and Fire.

p37
Spit cat, spit
Your tongue shall be split
And all the dogs in our town
Shall have a Bit.

Unfortunately p36 has been removed from the BL online images as being too offensive, possibly racist.
