Pipe Song

Care is all stuff:--
  Puff! Puff!
To puff is enough:--
  Puff! Puff
More musky than snuff,
And warm is a puff:--
  Puff! Puff
Here we sit mid our puffs,
Like old lords in their ruffs,
Snug as bears in their muffs:--
  Puff! Puff
Then puff, puff, puff,
For care is all stuff,
Puffed off in a puff--
  Puff! Puff!
