Naughty Baby

Naughty Baby

  Baby, baby, naughty baby,
  Hush, you squalling thing, I say.
  Peace this moment, peace, or maybe
  Bonaparte will pass this way.

  Baby, baby, he's a giant,
  Tall and black as Rouen steeple,
  And he breakfasts, dines, rely on't,
  Every day on naughty people.

  Baby, baby, if he hears you
  As he gallops past the house,
  Limb from limb at once he'll tear you,
  Just as pussy tears a mouse.

  And he'll beat you, beat you, beat you,
  And he'll beat you into pap,
  And he'll eat you, eat you, eat you,
  Every morsel snap, snap, snap.
