There Was a Little Girl
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good,
She was very good indeed,*
But when she was bad she was horrid…
*Apparently, often misquoted as “She was very, very good.” I tend to prefer this erroneous recitation to the unedited original, no doubt b/c the flawed rendition is the one I was raised reciting.
