'Once there was a little girl, who always laughed and grinned,
and made fun of everyone, of all her blood and kin, and once when there was company
and old folks was there, she mocked them and she shocked them and said, she didn't care.
And just as she turned on her heels, to go and run and hide,
there was two great big black things a-standing by her side.
They snatched her through the ceiling fore she knew what she's about,
and the goblins'll gitcha ef ya don't watch out!'
