Pray, little ones, heed:
Each day, we are told, heed:
A most wonderful Hen heed:
Laid an egg made of gold heed:
For this meanest of men.



So greedy was he, heed:
He was not satisfied. heed:
"What is one egg to me? heed:
I want all that's inside!"

And began to explore. heed:
But the poor hen was dead. heed:
And could lay eggs no more. heed:
