"Knock knock old woman! Let me in!
You have to pay for all your sin!
It's time to die! Don't make a scene!
Come with me to the Tower Green!"
"How kind of you to visit me!
Come in and have a spot of tea!
It's lovely that you paid a call,
I'm not so lonely after all!"
"You didn't hear a word I said!
I'm taking you to lose your head!
Go change your clothes! Wear something old!
And take off all your jewels and gold!"
"What's that you say? You brought a rose?
I'll get a vase! Here's where it goes!
We'll put in on the window sill
Make sure the water doesn't spill!"
"Good grief old lady! Can't you hear?
You should be scared and full of fear!
Say bye bye to your graying head
When it is gone, you will be dead!"
"I love fresh air! Let's go outside!
I'll let you take me for a ride!
You're such a nice boy! Take my hand,
I'm old. I'm sure you understand!"
"I got her! This is Margaret Pole!
Chop off her head and make it roll!
She's doesn't know what's going on
And that her life will soon be gone!"
"How pretty! I feel like a lass!
Let's have a picnic on the grass!
I love it on the green! It's nice!
Let's eat some little cakes of spice!"
"You daffy dame! Lay down your head!
I'll chop it off and make you dead!
The king said that you gotta go,
And I intend to make it so!'
"Oh this is fun! Let's have a race!
I feel young in this pretty place!
We'll play some tag, and you be it!
When I am tired, I will sit!"
"I got ya! Here's the chopping block!
I got my axe, I'm taking stock!
This is my first beheading though,
I'll try to do it with one blow."
"I'm tired now! This is a wrap!
I'll lay down here and take a nap.
If I should die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take."
"Whack!.......Why is she still attached?
Chop chop! ...Why isn't it dispatched?!!!
Hack hack hack! The broad ain't dead
Her head is hanging by a thread!"
"Oh silly boy! You're such a bore!
I guess you'll go for number four!
Now hurry up! Pick up the axe
Cuz Painter has a poem to wax."
