Bread and Milk

Bread and Milk :

Oh, whether in a mug

Or a little china jug,

There's nothing in the world so nice as milk:

When you've got an appetite

It makes your eyes so bright

And little cheeks as soft as any silk!

I've heard it also said,

Nothing's half so good as bread,

If hungry you should ever chance to be;

The miller grinds the corn,

And the baker every morn

Bakes crusty loaves to sell to you and me!

And if you ever wish

For a lovely kind of dish,

To set before me on the breakfast-table,

A basin and a spoon

Some bread-and -milk, and soon

I'll eat it up as fast as I am able!
