I haf von funny leedle poyVot comes schust to mine knee;Der queerest schap, der createst rogue,As ever you dit see.He runs und schumps and schmashes dingsIn all barts off der house:But vot off dot? He vas mine son,Mine leedle Yawcob Strauss.Charles Follen Adams
If an S and an I and an O and a UWith an X at the end spell Su;And an E and a Y and an E spell I,Pray what is a speller to do?Then, if also an S and an I and a GAnd an HED spell side,There's nothing much left for a speller to doBut to go commit siouxeyesighed.Charles Follen Adams
