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.
