A Little Boy Ran


A little boy ran to the end of the sky

With a rag and a pole and a gooseberry pie

He cried: “Three cheers for the Fourth of July!”

With a rag and a pole and a gooseberry pie

He saw three little donkeys at play

He tickled their noses to make them bray

And he didn’t come back until Christmas Day

With a rag and a pole and a gooseberry pie
