John's Jacobus (Inscription)

 

Lyrics

A careless corvid cut the air

A golden jacobus in its beak

As it flew over the water

Its grasp upon the coin grew weak

The jacobus then fell to earth

Where John Duck stood, his future bleak

It set his mind to such a fire

He would show that butchers’ clique

All the elements now in place

To raise him from a standing meek

John’s jacobus, that mighty coin

Would bring the fortune he did seek



(Gary Miller)
