The Jack this Year

jack-o-lanternJack-o-lantern, Jack-a-glow

Jack of diamonds, Jack of spades

Jack yesterday, Jack tomorrow,

Prince of knaves, Jack of all trades,

Jack o-nine tails, Jack be quick,

Jack jumped over the candlestick,

Jack in the pulpit, Jack in the box,

Blackjack, Hijack, sly as a fox.
