There was a man, he went mad.

He jumped into a paper bag.


The paper bag was too narrow,

He jumped into a wheelbarrow.


The wheelbarrow took on fire,

He jumped into a cow byre.


The cow byre was too nasty,

He jumped into an apple pasty.


The apple pasty was too sweet,

He jumped into Cheter-le-Street.


Chester-le-Street was full of stones,

He fell down and broke his bones.
