NURSERY RHYMES FROM THE FORKS OF THE OHIO.

Oranges and lemons
Say the bells of St. Clement’s.

Persimmons and quinces,
Say the bells of St. Vince’s.

Valve-stems and hoses,
Say the bells of St. Rose’s.

Ubers and jitneys,
Say the bells of St. Britney’s.

Lederhosen and sombreros,
Say the bells of St. Oscar Romero’s.

Baconian and Shakespearean,
Say the bells of Third Presbyterian.

Here comes a candle with light for your eyes,
And here comes a parish committee to reorganize.
