Hark Hark the Dogs Do Bark

Hark Hark the Dogs Do Bark

Hark! Hark! The dogs do bark,
The beggars are coming to town.
Some in rags,
And some in tags,
And one in a velvet gown!


These words were frequently chanted during the reign of Queen Elizabeth in the 16th century as homeless men and women begged her for food and water.
