THERE WAS A LITTLE MAN.
2.      The little maid replied, Little Sir! you've little said
To induce a little maiden to wed, wed,wed; You must say a little more, And produce a little store,
Ere I to the church will be led, led, led.
3.      The little man replied,
If you'll be my little bride, I will raise my little note a little higher; Though I've little for to prate, Yet my little heart is great, By the little God of Love,I am on fire.
4.      The little maid replied, If I be your little bride,
Pray what would you give me to eat, eat, eat ?
Would the flame that you're so rich in,
Put a fire into the kitchen, Or the little God of Love stir the spit, spit, spit.
5.      The little man replied, And, some say, a little cried,
For his little heart was filled with sorrow;
With the little that I have,
I will be your little slave, And the rest my little dear we will borrow.
Thus did the little gent,
Make the little maid relent, For her little heart began to beat, beat, beat;
Though his offers were but small,
She accepted of them all, Now she thanks her little stars for her fate, fate, fate.
