Betty Botter had some butter,
“But,” she said, “This butter’s bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter,
it would make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter–

better than her bitter butter,
and she baked it in her batter,
and the batter was not bitter.
So ’twas better Betty Botter
bought a bit of better butter.

Had Soar seen See’s saw
Before See sawed Soar’s seesaw,
See’s saw would not have sawed
So See’s saw sawed Soar’s seesaw.
But it was sad to see Soar so sore
just because See’s saw sawed
I cannot bear to see a bear
Bear down upon a hare.
When bare of hair he strips the hare,
Right there I cry, “Forbear!”

I need not your needles, they’re needless to me;
For kneading of noodles, ‘there needless, you see;
But did my neat knickers but need to be kneed,
I then should have need of your needles indeed.
