Lewis Carroll

Speak Roughly to Your Little Boy

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

‘Wow! wow! wow!’

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

‘Wow! wow! wow!’
