I should enjoy, if I was let,
Tea-parties nearly ev'ry day.
It is the nicest kind of play—
With dishes from the kitchen set,
And all the cookies we can get,
And tea that's made the cambric way.
I usurally like to stay
Until the food has all been et.
And then, although I'm really glad
To leave, it's more polite, you know,
To say: My dear, it makes me sad,
But I must call my dolls and go."
(I'm glad my manners are n't as bad
As those of other girls I know!)
