A tale of two tivs

Barry built a wooden tiv

    and Billy bought a tin one,

and each one said he wouldn’t’ve

    done what his friend had done.


Then Billy said “Look at my tin tiv!

    Said Barry “It’s pretty good!

If I had money I mightn’t’ve

     made this here tiv of wood.


Said Billy, “Have you thought’f

     Trading yours for mine?

For now I think I oughtnt’ve

         gone to the shop and bought a tiv

         when p’r’aps your wooden tiv’ll’ve

     been really rather fine.


Then trade they did, a tiv for a tiv

    And happy they were to trade:

the one for the tiv the other had bought

    And the other the other had made.
