“EARLY TO BED, AND EARLY TO RISE.”
“You naughty bird, I want to know
Why you so early rise;
You wake me, when you know that I
Have hardly closed my eyes?”
“Why, really, dear,” said Cocky Crow,
“I hear you with surprise;
You go to bed with other lambs,
And quickly shut your eyes.”
“So when I sound my morning call,
Be quick, my pet, and rise;
For that’s the way to healthy be,
And wealthy, love, and wise.”

There was an old man,
And he had a calf,
And that’s half;
He took him out of the stall,
And put him on the wall,
And that’s all.
