This catch gained a Catch Club prize medal in 1778: one of those catches that is ruder in performance than the slightly risqué lyrics might suggest. This edition comprises a modern realisation, and a statement of the piece in its original specialised format.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

As t'other day, Susan and Tom trudg'd along,
Says Susan to Tom "Come, let's join in a song".
Then straight they began, but he could not go through,
"Put me in, Sue" he cries, "or else it won't do".
Sue smiling replied "You lubberly lout;
If I do put you in, you soon will be out".
Says Sam, overhearing as driving his cart,
"Since Tom can't keep in Sue, let me fill the part".
