Oh, Mother Goose...She has given us nursery rhymes about dreadful injuries, idiot children who don't fit in, and other crazy topics - all presented in a snappy fashion. In Little Tommy Tucker we are told the heartbreaking story of a poor man who has nothing... Little Tommy Tucker
sings for his supper.
What shall we give him?
White bread and butter.
How shall he cut it
without a knife?
How shall he marry
without a wife?

The poor guy just can't catch a break.
