A Book of Nursery Songs and Rhymes/Nursery Songs/XXI. WINE AND WATER
Said Wine to Water, So fine I be,
They carry me over both land and sea,
They call me both Port and Sherry,
I cause every heart to be merry,
I cause every heart to be merry.
Said Water to Wine, So useful I be,
No kitchen can do for a day without me.
For all the week round I am toiling,
I am washing, I'm baking, and boiling,
I am washing, I'm baking, and boiling.
