LITTLE ORPHANT ANNIE

--James Whitcomb Riley Little Orphant Annie’s come to our house to stay, An’ wash the cups an’ saucers up, an’ brush the crumbs away, An’ shoo the chickens off the porch, an’ dust the hearth, an’sweep, An’ make the fire, an’ bake the bread, an’ earn her board-an-keep; An’ all us other 1hildren, when the supper-things is done, We set around the kitchen fire an’ has the mostest fun, A-listenin’ to the witch-tales ‘at Annie tells about, An’ the Gobble-uns ‘at gits you Ef you Don’t Watch Out! Wunst they wuz a little boy wouldn’t say his prayers, An’ when he went to bed at night, away up-stairs, His Mammy heerd him holler, an’ his Daddy heerd him bawl, An’ when they turn’t the kivvers down, he wuzn’t there at all! An’ they seeked him in the rafter-room, an’ cubby-hole, an’press, An seeked him up the chimbly-flue, an’ ever’-wheres, I guess; But all they ever found wuz jist his pants an’ roundabout: An’ the Gobble-uns ‘ll git you Ef you Don’t Watch Out! An’ one time a little girl ‘ud allus laugh an’ grin, An’ make fun of ever’ one, an’ all her blood-an’-kin; An’ wunst, when they was “company,” an’ ole folks wuz there, She mocked ‘em an’ shocked ‘em, an’ said she didn’t care! An’ thist as she kicked her heels, an’ turn’t to run an’hide, They wuz two great big Black Things a-standin’ by her side, An’ they snatched her through the ceilin’ ‘for she knowed what she’s about! An’ the Gobble-uns ‘ll git you Ef you Don’t Watch Out! An’ little Orphant Annie says, when the blaze is blue, An’ the lamp-wick sputters, an’ the wind goes woo-oo! An’ you hear the crickets quit, an’ the moon is gray, An’ the lightnin’ bugs in dew is all squenched away, You better mind yer parunts, an’ yer teachurs fond an’ dear, An’ cherish them ‘at loves you, an’ dry the orphant’s tear, An’ he’p the pore an’ needy ones ‘at clusters all about, Er the Gobble-uns ‘ll git you Ef you Don’t Watch Out!

But I still didn't have my cup of sugar . You can't come in. When the cops drove up. it's not my fault wolves eat cute little animals like bunnies and sheep and pigs. because nobody has ever heard my side of the story. of course I was trying to break down this Pig's door. I was framed. folks would probably think you were Big and Bad too. I'm shaving the hairs on my chinny-chin-chin. And I snuffed. I was making a birthday cake for my dear old granny. And he wouldn't give me even one little cup for my dear sweet old granny's birthday cake. Think of it as a second helping. The case has been characterized as a media circus. are you in?" He yelled back. He had built his whole house out of straw. Pig. are you in?" And do you know what that rude little porker answered? "Get out of here. I had a terrible sneezing cold.

And the whole time I was huffing and puffing and sneezing and making a real scene.dead as a doornail. Maybe it's because of our diet. Nobody answered. So I did the only thing there was to do. The real story is about a sneeze and a cup of sugar. I'm Alexander T. Then the Third Little Pig yelled. and The Second Little Pig. but the guy's house fell down just like his brother's.
