I was the giant great and still That sits upon the pillow-hill, And sees before him, dale and plain,...
Strana 187 - Good-night to all my friends on shore; I shut my eyes and sail away And see and hear no more. And sometimes things to bed I take, As prudent sailors have to do; Perhaps a slice of wedding-cake, Perhaps a toy or two. All night across the dark we steer; But when the day...
Strana 30 - THE MUFFIN MAN Oh, do you know the muffin man, The muffin man, the muffin man ; Oh, do you know the muffin man That lives in Drury Lane? Oh, yes, I know the muffin man, The muffin man, the muffin man.
Strana 24 - Baff,' And gave me this staff, Telling me neither to smile nor to laugh. Buff says 'Baff,' to all his men, And I say 'Baff to you again. And he neither laughs nor smiles, In spite of all your cunning wiles, But carries his face with a very good grace, And passes his staff to the very next place.
