You Are Going Out

You are going out to tea today,

So mind how you behave,

Let all accounts I have of you,

Be pleasant ones, I crave.

Don't spill your tea or gnaw your bread,

And don't tease one another,

And Tommy mustn't talk too much,

Or quarrel with his brother.

Say "If you please" and "Thank you nurse",

Come home at eight o'clock,

And, Fanny, pray be careful that,

You do not tear your frock.

Now, mind your manners, children five,

Attend to what I say,

And then perhaps I'll let you go,

Again another day.
