The pot called the kettle black. The kettle called the pot black back. ‘Give me my sack back’, he cried. ‘Or I’ll give you a crack !’. ‘I’ll give you a wack back !’ replied the kettle, sick of being called black. ‘I’ll make your eye black !’. ‘Then I’ll hit you with my sack’, said the pot to the kettle running back to his shack, scared of getting a smack. Come ‘ere so I can give you a twack ! But his mack wasn’t slack so he had to jack back. The pot called the kettle black. The kettle called the pot black back.
