Rose Lily was a very nice girl
A very nice girl indeed
But she was always wanting
Things she didn't really need.
She saw the moon up in the sky
Stretched out her arms, began to cry
I've simply got to have it
Or I will surely die!
She spied the dog, eating his dinner
'He's too fat, ' she said, 'He should be thinner! '
And though she knew that it was rude
She gobbled all the poor dog's food.
'Don't touch the cooker', Mummy told her
'You'll have to wait until you're older.'
But Lily turned the gas up higher
And soon the kitchen was on fire!
Then one day, Lil went much too far
She thought she'd drive her daddy's car
Had the most gigantic smash!
And Daddy paid a lot of cash.
Now poor Lily sits in jail
From far and near we hear her wail
'Please let me out! Just open the door!
And I'll never do such silly things any more! '
