Item: A Catch upon Tom Jolly’s Nose

by Dr Aldrich . For Three voices, in A minor

Song: Tom Jolly’s Nose I mean to abuse, thy jolly...

Tom Jolly's Nose I mean to abuse, thy jolly Nose Tom provokes my Muse: thy Nose jolly Tom that shines so bright, I'll easily follow it by its own light: thy Nose Tom Jolly no jest it will bear, altho' it yeilds Matter enough, and to spare; but jolly Tom's Nose, for all he can do, breeds Worms in it self, and in our Heads too, Tom's Nose, jolly Tom's Nose, the more it is banter'd, the more it glows: then drink to Tom Jolly a cooling Glass, or jolly Tom's Nose will fire his Face.
