Juan era un hombre honrado,gordo, lucio y colorado

Pero le dió la manía de estudiar pedagogía

Y diez arrobas cabales pesaba entonces Juan Bales

Obtubo escuela, y en breve solo llegó a pesar nueve

A todas las horas el cura le quemaba la figura

Si algún bruto no aprendía, la madre le escarnecía

O el padre de algún inculto quería buscarle el bulto

Su sueldo pedía en balde al gobierno y al alcalde

Y como nunca cobraba, el hambre le devoraba

Al dormir, sus pesadillas eran panes y tortillas

Se iba al sol frecuentemente por tomar algo caliente

La libertad de enseñanza practicaba de esta traza

Se desmayó cierto día frente à una pastelería

Contemplaba su alacena más limpia que una patena

Como no daba dinero le echó a la calle el casero

Y el hombre salió del paso habitando à campo raso

Quiere atraer,¡vano intento! las aves con el aliento

Tan flacucho ya se hallaba que ni sombra proyectaba

Cuando el viento oir se deja tiene que subir a una reja

Una día de hambres crueles se engulló cuatro carteles

Y de allí a pocos momentos le dieron los sacramentos

Murió, y à su cuerpo enjuto sirvió de caja un canuto

Sin clérigos y si canto lleváronle al camposanto

Y España que tal consiente, mantiene gorda à esta gente.
