Let your little verses flow
Gently, sweetly, row by row;
Let the verse the subject fit,
Little subject, little wit.
Genteel in personage,
Conduct, and equipage;
Noble by heritage,
Generous and free.
God save our gracious king!
Long live our noble king!
God save the king!
Of all the girls that are so smart
There's none like pretty Sally,
She is the darling of my heart,
And she lives in our alley.
To thee, and gentle Rigdom Funnidos,
Our gratulations flow in streams unbounded.
As an actor does his part,
So the nurses get by heart
Namby-pamby's little rhymes,
Little jingle, little chimes.
Where left you Chrononhotonthologos?
Let the singing singers
With vocal voices, most vociferous,
In sweet vociferation out-vociferize
Even sound itself.
Go call a coach, and let a coach be called;
And let the man who calleth be the caller;
And in his calling let him nothing call
But Coach! Coach! Coach! Oh for a coach, ye gods!
His cogitative faculties immersed
In cogibundity of cogitation.
Of all the days that's in the week
I dearly love but one day,
And that's the day that comes betwixt
A Saturday and Monday.
