First Line: Every night my prayers I say
Last Line: Or else his dear papa is poor.
Alternate Author Name(s): Stevenson, Robert Lewis Balfour
Variant Title(s): A Child's Garden Of Verses: 19
Subject(s): Prayer


Every night my prayers I say,
And get my dinner every day;
And every day that I've been good,
I get an orange after food.

The child that is not clean and neat,
With lots of toys and things to eat,
He is a naughty child, I'm sure --
Or else his dear papa is poor.
