A Dialogue by H. Foote et al.

The title page of the Table Rock Album


H. Foote:

To hear this water roar,
To see this water pour,
Is certainly much more,
Than I’ve heard or seen before

A. Legg:

To hear a jackass bray
Is nothing new to-day —
You can neither sing nor say;
So you may go away.

Francis Head:

You had better toddle too,
For you’re blockheads through and through —
‘Pon my honor, it is true —
Cock-a-doodle-doo.

Durham:

Good morning, how d’ye do?
How much wiser, pray are you,
Than the other stupid two?
Tell me that and tell me true.
