Mistress Mary

Mistress Mary

“Mistress Mary quite wat-ery how does your river flow? With some fish that are a dish for Mistress Mary’s crow.”

Mistress Mary quite contrary how does your garden grow? With silver bells and and cockle shells and marigolds all in a row.

 

Mistress Mary very hairy how does your hair grow? With puffy tufts and tons of makeup and it’s all tucked into a bow.

 

Mistress Mary quite wat-ery how does your river flow? With some fish that are a dish for Mistress Mary’s crow.

 

Mistress Mary like a fairy how much does your heart glow? Like a light oh so bright Mistress Mary here you go.
