MY HIDING PLACE AND ME, by                    
First Line: Sh - big sister's going by
Last Line: My hiding place and me!
Subject(s): Castles; Silence

Sh -- big sister's going by,
Sh -- that's Daddy whom I spy,
Sh -- here comes the caller nigh
My hiding place and me!

Sh -- if they should find me now
They'd pull me out to make a bow
And probably they'd ask me how
I happen here to be.

And I could never, never tell
That I am Princess Clarabell,
Because they'd laugh and say, "Well, well!"
And they would never see

That in this corner where I play
There is a castle grand and gay. . . .
Oh, no! they'd laugh at all I say
My hiding place and me!
