Having taken just one short look at my rockery,

he turned and he shouted, ‘It’s a mockery!’

I thought him a character of fun,

like Dockery in ‘Dockery and Son’,

but, as he went, he smashed all of my crockery.

‘This ‘jiggery-pockery’ has got to stop!’

I looked at the clock, and its tick-tockery,

and knew that the time was near;

I pawned all of my jewels

(put them all into hockery)

to raise up the funds to pursue,

follow, go after,

that man whose name was Englebert Nockery.
