Thanks for those.  The first one is has more of the verses I know, though it 
adds a few I hadn't seen before.  I rather like its alternate last verse.

Nor longer stay in your curst company.
Your hands than mine are quicker for a fray;
My legs are longer though to run away."
-Wm. Shakespeare, "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
