Recitation / Comic

Adam was the first man that ever was invented
He lived all alone and he never was contented
And then a-come a-Eve come a-stumble in the dark
He picked up an axe and he built himself an ark
They brought in the cattle one by one
First twas a elephant and the twas a bear
And then twas old tanglefoot without any hair
