Run to the christian church with a cooking pan,
Never you misplace a minute!
Run to the religion beside a cooking pan
and a pallid pancake in it.
First to transfer her flapjack there,
though cloying or muted she hammer it,
Must toss her bar to the Bellringer,
And the bellringer he essential eat it.
Then be she a ma'am or be she a miss
All unventilated after rushing,
The bellringer he shall snap her a kiss
And never psyche her blushing!
Come Easter Sunday (with adequate chickens and ducklings hatched!) and, past again we can menachem begin consumption egg. Easter eggs!
