The Flies and the Honey Pot

Mr Meant-to

Mr Meant-to has a comrade, And his name is Didn't-do; Have you ever chanced to meet them? Did they ever call on you?These two fellows live together In the house of Never-win, And I'm told that it is haunted, By the ghost of Might-have-been.

If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain;If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one robin Unto his nest again,I shall not live in vain.
