There was a young lady whose chin
Resembled the point of a pin ;
So she had it made sharp,
And purchased a harp,
And played several tunes with her chin.
There was an old person of Gretna
Who rushed down the crater of Etna;
When they said, "Is it hot ?"
He replied, "No, it's not !"
That mendacious old person of Gretna.
That bottle of perfume that Willie sent
Was highly displeasing to Millicent.
Her thanks were so cold
They quarrelled, I'm told
Through that silly scent Willie sent Millicent.
There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, "It is just as I feared ! -
Two Owls and a Hen.
Have all built their nests in my beard !"
At a bullfight in sunny Madrid
A tourist went clear off his lid
He made straight for the bull
While the crowd yelled, "The fool
Will go home on a slab" - and he did.
