My Mother Said Never Play With Gipsies

My Mother said, I never should
Play with the gipsies in the wood;
If I did, she would say,
You naughty girl to disobey.

Your hair shan't curl and your shoes shan't shine,
You gipsy girl, you shan't be mine.
And my father said that if I did
He'd rap my head with the teapot-lid.

An April ay - Alternative Version

The sky to-day is like a naughty child :
At first 'twas bright and gay, the sunshine smiled.

Then clouds so gray along the sky were piled,
It wept its tears away with sobbings wild.

And so all day it ever cried and smiled.
"What will it do next, pray?" asks a small child.
