First Line: Speak roughly to your little boy
Last Line: The pepper when he pleases!
Alternate Author Name(s): Carroll, Lewis
Subject(s): Children; Langford, G. W.; Childhood


Speak roughly to your little boy,
And beat him when he sneezes;
He only does it to annoy,
Because he knows it teases.

I speak severely to my boy,
I beat him when he sneezes;
For he can thoroughly enjoy
The pepper when he pleases!
