    There was an Old Person of Basing,
    Whose presence of mind was amazing;
    He purchased a steed, which he rode at full speed,
    And escaped from the people of Basing.
    There was an Old Man of the Nile,
    Who sharpened his nails with a file;
    Till he cut off his thumbs,
    And said calmly, "This comes—
    Of sharpening one's nails with a file!"
  • There was an old Man of Bohemia,
    Whose daughter was christened Euphemia;
    Till one day, to his grief,
    She married a thief,
    Which grieved that old Man of Bohemia.
    There was a Young Girl of Majorca,
    Whose Aunt was a very fast walker;
    She walked seventy miles, and leaped fifteen stiles,
    Which astonished that Girl of Majorca.
