I Had A Little Husband

: Boys And Girls Bookshelf

"I had a little husband

No bigger than my thumb,

I put him in a pint pot,

And there I bid him drum

I bought a little handkerchief

To wipe his little nose,

And a pair of little garters

To tie his little hose."

I bought a little carriage

And took him out to ride,

And yet with all my efforts

He wasn't satisfied.

I never would have married,

Now this I do declare,--

If I'd supposed a husband

Was such an awful care.
