As I walked by myself

As I walked by myself,
And talked by myself.
Myself said unto me:
Look to thyself,
Take care of thyself,
For nobody cares for thee.

I answered myself,
And said to myself.
In the selfsame repartee:
Look to thyself,
Or not look to thyself,
The self same thing will be!

Over The River And Through The Woods

Over the river and through the woods,
To Grandmother's house we go,
The horse knows the way
to carry the sleigh,
Through the white and drifted snow,

Over the river and through the woods,
Oh how the wind does blow,
It stings the toes and bites the nose,
As over the ground we go,

Over the river and through the woods
To have a full day of play,
Oh, hear the bells ringing ting-a-ling ling,
For it's Thanksgiving Day,

Over the river and through the woods,
Trot fast, my dapple gray,
Spring o'er the ground just like a hound,
Hooray for Thanksgiving Day!

Over the river and through the woods,
And straight through the barnyard gate,
It seems that we go so dreadfully slow,
It is so hard to wait,
Over the river and through the woods,
Now Grandma's cap I spy,
Hooray for the fun, the pudding's done,
Hooray for the pumpkin pie,

Hooray for the fun, the pudding's done,
Hooray for the pumpkin pie!
