Lived on butter and bread and tea,
And as to that they would both agree:
Isabel, Curabel, Jones & Lee.
Isabel said: While prunes have stones
They aren't a promising food for Jones.
Curabel said: Well, as for me,
Tripe is a terrible thing for Lee.
There's not a dish or fowl or fish
For which we wish, said I. & C.
And that is why until we die
We'll eat no pie, nor beg nor buy
But butter and bread and a trace of tea.
(Signed) Isabel Jones & Curabel Lee.
