Ann Ann Come Quick
Come! quick as you can!
There's a fish that TALKS
In the frying pan.
Out of the fat,
As clear as glass,
He put up his mouth
And moaned 'Alas!'
Oh most mournful,
Then turned to his sizzling,
And sank him back
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Sweet Benedict, whilst thou art young,
And know'st not yet the use of tongue,
Keep it in thrall whilst thou art free:
Imprison it or it will thee.
