The Real Mother Goose, Part 3


When I was a bachelor
  I lived by myself;
And all the bread and cheese I got
  I laid up on the shelf.

The rats and the mice
  They made such a strife,
I was forced to go to London
  To buy me a wife.

The streets were so bad,
  And the lanes were so narrow,
I was forced to bring my wife home
  In a wheelbarrow.

The wheelbarrow broke,
  And my wife had a fall;
Down came wheelbarrow,
  Little wife and all.
