: A Book For Kids

I'd like to be a pieman, and ring a little bell,

Calling out, "Hot pies! Hot pies to sell!"

Apple-pies and Meat-pies, Cherry-pies as well,

Lots and lots and lots of pies--more than you can tell.

Big, rich Pork-pies! Oh, the lovely smell!

But I wouldn't be a pieman if . . .

I wasn't very well.

Would you?
