My name is Rankle Potter

I'm as quick as a River-Otter.

I pick a pocket

Take a watch or locket

Then Pawn it for me Fodder.

 

Artful Dodger's got noth-in on me

I buzz around like a Bumble-Bee.

I look for treasure,

The sweet stuff's my pleasure,

I'm a Hummingbird 'round a Cherry Tree.

 

A Bobble, here, or a Bracelet, there,

A Wallet or Purse, taken with care

Will provide me a meal.

That's why I steal,

'cause me cupboard is always bare.

 

Tomorrow's just another day

I got 30 more, the lawyers say.

I met with a Bobby

That nabs thieves as a hobby,

So now I got to pay.
