Subject(s): Brothers & Sisters; Dolls; Toys


Dolls are silly things to play with,
There's so much a boy prefers;
But at times I have to stay with
Sister when she tends to hers.

And besides I often find her,
(For you know how young she is!)
Needing some one to remind her
Of her 'sponsibilities.

Anne and Lucy, Tot and Ted,
Do you dollies s'pose
That it's right to go to bed
Wearing all your clo'se?
Your Mamma's too young, I s'pect,
To be scolded for neglect!

I'm a year and one month older
Than my sister is, and she
Can't expect (so Mother's told her)
To sit up as late as me.
So each night, when she is sleeping,
It's my duty for awhile
Just to see if she is keeping
All her dolls in proper style.

Anne and Lucy, Tot and Ted,
Listen here to me!
Every night you go to bed
Wicked as can be.
Don't you s'pose that Someone cares
If you never say your prayers?
