Jack Smith, a fellow fine, rhyme / Eddie Butcher, speech in English

‘Jack Smith, a fellow fine,
Can you shoe this horse of mine?’
‘Yes indeed and that I can
Just as well as any man
Here’s a nail and there’s a prod
Ta tu millen tod
Jump Jack, your horse is shod!’

Notes from Hugh Shields

A “prod” refers to a “sharp instrument.” Line 6: a corruption of Irish, or potentially the sound of a hammer.
