The Duchess' lullaby

By shellicherise

If every parent followed Lewis Carrol's advice for parenting, children might be better behaved. ;-)

"'Speak roughly to your little boy,
And beat him when he sneezes:
He only does it to annoy,
Because he knows it teases.'

Chorus.

(In which the cook and the baby joined): -

'Wow! wow! wow!'

While the Duchess sang the second verse of the song, she kept tossing the baby violently up and down, and the poor little thing howled so, that Alice could hardly hear the words: -

'I speak severely to my boy,
I beat him when he sneezes;
For he can thoroughly enjoy
The pepper when he pleases!'

Chorus.

'Wow! wow! wow!'"
