Eat Nothing At All!

“There Was An Old Woman.”

There was an old woman

Called Nothing-at-all,

Who rejoiced in a dwelling

Exceedingly small:

A man stretched his mouth

To its utmost extent,

And down at one gulp

House and old woman went.

The Old Woman Never Told Lies!

Woman-Mother-Goose-Volland-SQ

There was an old woman lived under the hill,

And if she’s not gone she lives there still.

Baked apples she sold, and cranberry pies,

And she’s the old woman that never told lies.
