“If no one ever marries me, — / And I don't see why they should, / For nurse says I'm not pretty, / And I'm seldom very good — / If no one ever marries me / I shan't mind very much; / I shall buy a squirrel in a cage, / And a little rabbit-hutch: / I shall have a cottage near a wood, / And a pony all my own, / And a little lamb quite clean and tame, / That I can take to town: / And when I'm getting really old, — / At twenty-eight or nine — / I shall buy a little orphan-girl / And bring her up as mine.”
