The wondering neighbors ran,
And swore the dog had lost his wits,
To bite so good a man.
The wound, it seemed both sore and sad
To every Christian eye ;2
And while they swore the dog was mad,
They swore the man would die.
But soon a wonder came to light,
That showed the rogues they lied--
The man recovered of the bite,
The dog it was that died.
