The Giddy Girl

Miss Helen was always too giddy to heed
What her mother had told her to shun;
For frequently, over the street in full speed,
She would cross where the carriages run.

And out she would go to a very deep well,
To Look at the water below;
How naughty! to run to a dangerous well,
Where her mother forbade her to go!

One morning, intending to take but one peep.
Her foot slipt away from the ground;
Unhappy misfortune! the water was deep,
And giddy Miss Helen was drown'd

Dirty Hands

O bless me Mary, how is this?
Your hands are very dirty, Miss;
I don't expect such hands to see
When you come into dine with me

Mamma, said little Mary, pray,
Shall we have company today?
That I should be so very clean?
By whom, pray, am I to be seen?

By whome, my girl? why by Mamma
By Brothers, Sisters and Papa;
Pray, do you not most love to see
Your parents and your family?

Be cleanly and polite at home,
Then you're prepared if friends should come
Make it your habit to be clean
No matter then by whom you're seen
