In a bowery shade,
A-sitting and knitting alonio.

Said, "If you will be my ownio,
I'll love you true,
And I'll buy for you,
An icery creamery conio!"

You're fare too bleak and bonio!
And all that I wish,
You singular fish,
Is that you will quickly begonio."

Then ran off and hid
(Or I'm told that he did)
In the Anticatartical Zonio.
