I ate a biscuit in bed last night
But this was really quite dumb,
For what my mother found gave her a fright
There was more than just one crumb.
She asked me what I was thinking?
To be in bed filling my belly.
I said I did no drinking
And I didn't spill one drop of jelly.
This only made her madder
She told me to wash all my sheets,
And now I am even sadder
'Cause she's banished me from sweets.
