    Is a Brother off the track?
    Try the Square;
    Try it well on every side.
    Nothing draws a craftsman back
    Like the Square when well applied.
    Try the Square.

    Is he crooked, is he frail?
    Try the Square.
    Try it early, try it late;
    When all other efforts fail,
    Try the Square to make him straight
    Try the Square.

    Does he still persist in wrong?
    Try the Square.
    Loves he darkness more than light?
    Try it thorough, try it long.
    Try the Square to make him right
    Try the Square.

    Fails the Square to bring him in?
    Try the Square.
    Be not sparing of the pains;
    While there’s any work to do,
    While a crook or knot remains
    Try the Square.
