Henry Blake’s father is just like his chum,
And when he goes fishing he lets Henry come,
He fixes two seats on the bank of the brook,
And shows Henry how to put worms on a hook,
And sometimes he laughs in the jolliest way,
At some little thing he hears Henry say,
And dips up a drink in his hat as you do,
When only just boys go a fishing with you.
