I had a little wife.



Nursery Rhymes Index


I had a little wife,


The prettiest ever seen.


She washed up the dishes,


And kept the house clean.


She went to the mill


To fetch me some flour,


And always got home


In less than an hour.


She baked me my bread,


She brewed me my ale


She sat by the fire


And told many a fine tale.
