in a corner
took a large bite,
said with delight
Oh, what a strong boy am I.
Spratt could eat no fat
wife could eat no lean;
they both ate potatoes
And scraped their platters clean.
was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
had so many children she didn't know what to do.
gave them potatoes instead of some bread,
the children were happy and very well fed.
