If No One Ever Marries Me

Little Girl
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.

Little SquirrelIf 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,
Little LambThat 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!Little Orphan Doll

Laurence Alma-Tadema
