WHAT FOLKS ARE MADE OF
What are little boys made of, made of?
What are little boys made of? Piggins and pails and little puppy tails,
That's what little boys are made of.
What are little girls made of? etc Sugar and spice and all things nice And that's what little girls made of.
What's young men made of? etc. Thorns and briars, they're all bad liars, And that's what young men made of.
What's young women made of? etc. Rings and jings and all fine things,
And that's what young women made of.
What's old men made of? etc. Whisky and brandy and sugar and candy, And that's what old men made of.
