There was an Old Woman,And what do you think?She lived upon nothing butVictuals and drink;And though victuals and drini:Were the chief of her diet,This little Old WomanCould never be quiet. e BaldwnThe Baldwin LibraryS UniversyFm63 d

This Little Old Woman,We here may remark,Had no house to live in,But one in the park,And none to wait on her,Poor soul, but her maids,"With some livery servants,Of different grades.

This Little Old Woman,The tale too declares,Had nothing to sit onBut sofas and chairs.No place to repose inAt night, but her bed;No pillows, but those madeOf down, for her head.

This Little Old Woman,'Twas always the case,Never looked in the glass,But she saw her own face:And what was still worseYet we vouch for its truth,By growing so old, sheHad lost all her youth.

This Little Old Woman,(The story so goes,)Had nothing to wear butAbundance of clothes.And, oh! let me weepAt the dismal news,She would have been barefooted,But for her shoes.

Z3p I014*I7-,This Little Old Woman,I'm sorry to tell,Had always bad health,When she was not quite well.And hard was her lot,For they tell me that sheWas ever in want,When she wanted her tea.

This Little Old Woman,On dying, we findLeft nothing-exceptA large fortune, behind.So pity her fate,Gentle reader, and say,Such women are notTo be found every day.
