Once upon a barren moor
There dwelt a bear, also a boar.
The bear could not bear the boar.
The boar thought the bear a bore.
At last the bear could bear no more
Of that boar that bored him on the moor,
And so one morn he bored the boar —
That boar will bore the bear no more.
One black beetle bled only black blood, the other black beetle bled blue.
One-One was a racehorse;
Two-Two was one, too.
When One-One won one race,
Two-Two won one, too.
Oh, the sadness of her sadness when she’s sad.
Oh, the gladness of her gladness when she’s glad.
But the sadness of her sadness, and the gladness of her gladness,
Are nothing like her madness when she’s mad!
One smart man, he felt smart.
Two smart men, they both felt smart.
Three smart men, they all felt smart.
