WUNST I tooked our pepper-box lid
An' cut little pie-dough biscuits, I did,
An' cooked 'em on our stove one day
When our hired girl she said I may.

Honey's the goodest thing -- Oo-ooh!
An' blackburry-pies is goodest, too!
But wite hot biscuits, ist soakin' wet
Wiv tree-mullasus, is goodest yet!

Miss Maimie she's my Ma's friend, -- an'
She's purtiest girl in all the lan'! --
An' sweetest smile an' voice an' face --
An' eyes ist looks like p'serves tas'e'!

I ruther go to the Circus-show;
But, 'cause my parunts told me so,
I ruther go to the Sund'y-school,
'Cause there I learn the goldun rule.

Say, Pa, -- what is the goldun rule
'At's allus at the Sund'y-school?
