|Nursery Songs/XXXVI. IF I HAD TWO SHIPS→|
If all the world were paper,
And all the seas were ink,
And all the trees were bread and cheese,
What should we have to drink?
If all the world were sand-o,
Oh, then, what should we lack-o?
I, as they say, there were no clay,
How should we take tobacco?
If all our vessels ran-a,
If none but had a crack;
If Spanish apes ate all our grapes,
What should we do for sack?
If all things were eternal,
And nothing their end bringing;
If this should be, then how should we
Here make an end of singing?
