There was a Little Man


There was a Little Man

There was a little man
Who wooed a little maid;
And he said; “Little maid, will you wed, wed, wed?
I have little more to say

So will you ay or nay?
For the least said is soonest men-ded, ded, ded.”
Then the little maid replied:
“Should I be your little bride

Pray what must we have for to eat, eat, eat?
Will the flame that you’re so rich in
Light a fire in the kitchen?
Or the little God of Love turn the spit, spit, spit?”
