He has an oar in every man’s boat, and a finger in every pie.

There were three sailors of Bristol city 
Who took a boat and went to sea. 
But first with beef and captain's biscuits 
And pickled pork they loaded she. 
There was gorging Jack and guzzling Jimmy, 
And the youngest he was little Billee. 
Now when they got as far as the Equator 
They'd nothing left but one split pea. 

W. M. Thackeray: Little Billee.
