James James
Morrison Morrison
Weatherby George Dupree
Took great
Care of his Mother,
Though he was only three.

"Mother," he said, said he;
"You must never go down
to the end of the town,

if you don't go down with me."

I am laughing, singing, skipping like a young child reading a nursery rhyme. Very enjoyable and nice use of repetition.

Hilarious. This is about how tyrannical young children are about their mothers always remaining close. As a mother myself this really strikes a chord!
