A Tabb Low (A Duet By Two Who Can'T Do It--D--And B--) - Poem by John Bannister Tabb
'Tabb's dead! and we who always keep
The Rule of Silence when we
Agreed, for his detested sake,
To keep it sometimes when
So that his students all might see
What lofty scorn of him had we.'
'Go now, and get your 'little ting,'
And we shall both
'Hush! The chant you spoil
And mispronounce the second
Tee Dyum you should say, like me.'
'Now den, you don't know 'Fa' from 'Si'.'
'Ah, B-- --, keep your temper, do,
Or Silence I shall keep with you.
Look there! I'll take my solemn oath
Tabb's body's grinning at us both.'
