Original text and translations
A fiddler and a fuddler are always together;
Like fiddle and case there was both or else neither.
United companions the like never known,
and may be compared to two parts in one.
The fiddler did fuddle and the fuddler did fiddle;
a unison sure doth unriddle the riddle.
