Run to the church with a cookery pan,
Never you put in the wrong place a minute!
Run to the cathedral with a preparation pan
and a ashen flapcake in it.
First to convey her cake there,
though filling or pallid she throb it,
Must toss her cake to the Bellringer,
And the bellringer he must eat it.
Then be she a lady or be she a miss
All short-winded after rushing,
The bellringer he shall present her a kiss
And ne'er mind her blushing!
Come Easter Sunday (with enough chickens and ducklings hatched!) and, sometime again we can statesman consumption food product. Easter eggs!
