I

Said the Table to the Chair,

“You can hardly be aware

How I suffer from the heat

And from chilblains on my feet.

If we took a little walk,

We might have a little talk;

Pray let us take the air,”

Said the Table to the Chair.

II

Said the Chair unto the Table,

“Now, you know we are not able:

How foolishly you talk,

When you know we cannot walk!”

Said the Table with a sigh,

“It can do no harm to try.

I’ve as many legs as you:

Why can’t we walk on two?”

III

So they both went slowly down,

And walked about the town

With a cheerful bumpy sound

As they toddled round and round;

And everybody cried,

As they hastened to their side,

“See! the Table and the Chair

Have come out to take the air!”

IV

But in going down an alley,

To a castle in a valley,

They completely lost their way,

And wandered all the day;

Till, to see them safely back,

They paid a Ducky-quack,

And a Beetle, and a Mouse,

Who took them to their house.

V

Then they whispered to each other,

“O delightful little brother,

What a lovely walk we’ve taken!

Let us dine on beans and bacon.”

So the Ducky and the leetle

Browny-Mousy and the Beetle

Dined, and danced upon their heads

Till they toddled to their beds.
