Lewis Carroll – My Fairy


You pyonged “Lewis Carroll – My Fairy”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

I have a fairy by my side
Which says I must not sleep
When once in pain I loudly cried
It said "You must not weep"
If, full of mirth, I smile and grin
It says "You must not laugh"
When once I wished to drink some gin
It said "You must not quaff"

When once a meal I wished to taste
It said "You must not bite"
When to the wars I went in haste
It said "You must not fight"

"What may I do?" at length I cried
Tired of the painful task
The fairy quietly replied
And said "You must not ask"

Moral: "You mustn't."
