There was a little girl,
And she had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead;

And when she was good,
She was very, very, good,
But when she was bad, she was horrid.

But she once had a dolly, and what do you think?
She gave it no food, she gave it no drink!
Still it had the best sawdust that she could afford,
And sawdust, you know, is very fine board!

Based on a nursery rhyme.
