There was a little man, Who wooed a little maid,

And he said, "Little maid, will you wed, wed, wed? 

I have little more to say, 

So will you, yea or nay, 

For least said is soonest mended-ded, ded, ded." 

The little maid replied,

"Should I be your little bride,

Pray what must we have for to eat, eat, eat?

Will the flame that you're so rich in 

Light a fire in the kitchen? 

Or the little god of love turn the spit, spit, spit?"
