    My Mother quoted it thus:
    Shake, shake the catsup bottle
    None'll come and then a lot'll

    I remember this poem as follows: Shake and Shake the catsup bottle,
    First a little,
    Then a lottle.

    First a little
    Then a lottle
    Ogden Nash

    Then they put it in a plastic bottle
    Squeeze as if to dottle
    The last few drops from the bottle
    Fst! is the sound
    Of air passing round
    The last few drops
    That showers all before it stops.
