by . A Catch for Three voices , in C major


“Whose three hogs are these?”
“They are John Cook’s,
I know by their looks,
for I found them in my peas,”
“Oh pound them,” “But I dare not for my life,
for if I should pound John Cook’s hogs,
I should never kiss John Cook’s wife,”
But as for John Cook’s wife, I’ll say no more than mum,
then here’s to thee thou first hog until the second come.
